Kansas Board of Regents accepting written comments on Perkins V performance targets
(Topeka, Kan.) - The Kansas Board of Regents and Kansas State Department of Education staff are implementing the new Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) legislation. This Act reauthorizes the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV).
A new component of the legislation requires that states determine proposed levels of performance for the new state plan, spanning a four-year period. Stakeholders may submit written comments regarding how the levels of performance meet the requirements of the law, support the performance of all concentrators, and support the needs of the local education and business community.
Written comments may be submitted at www.kansasregents.org/CTE beginning September 3 through November 4, 2019. All comments will be responded to in writing in the State plan. The proposed levels of performance and supporting documentation are also available online.
