Public Comment Open on Perkins V Wyoming State Plan

The public comment period on the proposed Wyoming State Plan for the “Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act,” Perkins V (five), is open now through January 3rd, 2020.

According to a release from the Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) the act provides funding for secondary and post-secondary career and technical education in Wyoming.

The state was awarded just over $5 million in federal funds in 2019-20, but in order to secure those funds, the state must submit its plan for Wyoming Career and Technical Education (CTE) for the next four years.

The Perkins V State Advisory Council of stakeholders was formed to help develop the Wyoming State Plan, to propose guidelines and performance assessment targets for school districts and community colleges receiving Perkins funds to provide students with high quality educational and work-based learning opportunities.
