|Cabell Schools Representatives Travel to Washington to Discuss Career and Technical Education
Representatives from Cabell County Schools participated in the National Policy Seminar hosted by the Association of Career and Technical Education in Washington DC this past February.
During the event, participants were given the opportunity to acquire in-depth knowledge of legislation pertaining to career and technical education. Tara Combs and Deborah Chapman took advantage of time allotted to spend at Capitol Hill to meet and discuss legislative topics with Senate and House of Representatives members from West Virginia. Particular topics of discussion were the reallocation of the Carl D. Perkins Act, which is the primary source of funding for career and technical education programs. And ESSA, the Every Student Succeeds Act, which specifically identifies career and technical education components with academic integration. Tara and Debbie walked the corridors of the House and Senate Buildings advocating on behalf of career and technical education in West Virginia. They had a personal meeting with Senator Joe Manchin and spoke with the legislative director for Senator Shelley Moore Capito and House of Representatives member David McKinley. Brief visits were also made to House of Representatives members Evan Jenkins and Alex Mooney’s office.
