Local Plan for Career and Technical Education
The local plan for Career and Technical Education is being made available to you earlier than usual this year. The change is to enable you to have additional time for planning, developing, and approving the plan with the representatives required by the Standards of Quality, as amended by Senate Bill 334 of 2002 and the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 1998. We hope the extra time will aid you in meeting the due date of May 7.
To introduce the revised Career and Technical Education Plan for 2004-05, James A. Gray, Jr., associate director, Office of Career and Technical Education Services, will make a presentation at each of the upcoming Career and Technical Education administrators regional meetings. The presentation will include an overview of the plan as well as a description of any changes in the plan.
Career and Technical administrators are encouraged to contact the regional chairperson to obtain the time and location of each meeting. Listed below is the schedule for the meetings and the name of each regional chairperson.
