INFORMATIONAL

TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Patricia I. Wright

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

Local Plan for Career and Technical Education

 

The local plan for career and technical education is being made available to local school divisions earlier this year to enable divisions to have additional time for planning, developing, and approving the plan with requirements authorized by the Standards of Quality and the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Act of 2006. We hope the extra time will help in meeting the due date of May 1, 2009 (Schedule 1C is due March 2, 2009).

 

Minor changes have been made in the 2009-10 plan to better clarify the information requested and to make reporting easier for localities. The changes are identified in red.

 

You may access the 2009-10 local plan at http://www.doe.virginia.gov/VDOE/Instruction/CTE/director.html. If you have questions regarding the plan or the changes, please contact Elizabeth Russell, director of career and technical education at Elizabeth.Russell@doe.virginia.gov or via phone at 804/225-2847; or Anne Rowe, CTE cluster coordinator at Anne.Rowe@doe.virginia.gov or via phone at 804/225-2838; or George Willcox, CTE cluster coordinator at George.Willcox@doe.virginia.gov or via phone at 804/225-2839.
