Perkins V

Perkins V State Plan Public Comment

The Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) was signed into law on July 31, 2018 and went into effect July 1, 2019.  

The Louisiana Perkins V State Plan represents the work of stakeholders from across Louisiana and continued engagement will be needed to ensure successful outcomes in our communities.


State and local performance accountability systems are designed to assess the effectiveness of state and local funding recipients in achieving progress in Career and Technical Education (CTE) and optimizing the return on investment for federal funds.  The state-determined performance measures must consist of the core indicators outlined in the Act and the state determined levels of performance (performance targets) for each of the indicators. They must be developed with input from local recipients.

With input from local recipients, the state must establish and include in the State Plan levels of performance for each of the core indicators of performance. The levels must be established for each of the four years covered by the State Plan in the initial submission to the Office of Career and Technical Education (OCTAE) within the United States Department of Education (USDOE).

The Act requires a minimum of sixty (60) days public comment prior to submitting the State Plan to OCTAE/USDOE. The levels of performance must be provided to stakeholders with the opportunity to provide written comments.  The comments may address how the levels meet the requirements of the law; support the improvement of performance of all CTE concentrators, including subgroups; and support the needs of the local education and business communities. Written comments and the State’s responses must be included in the final State Plan for submission to OCTAE/USDOE. 

Additional details for the information above, may be found in the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act, section 113.
