Perkins V is a federal education program that invests in secondary and postsecondary career and technical education (CTE) programs in all 50 states and the territories. It is dedicated to increasing learner access to high-quality CTE programs of study with a focus on program improvement; alignment across K-12, postsecondary and workforce; and economic development. Perkins V is critical to ensuring programs meet the ever-changing needs of learners and employers.
Two online surveys were made available for parents/families and students on the NJDOE homepage and on the Office of Career Readiness Perkins webpage. The data collected from these surveys will inform the NJ’s Perkins V State Plan and will help fulfill NJ CTE’s mission to, “support schools and districts to ensure all New Jersey students have equitable access to high quality career and technical education to achieve academic and career success.”
The surveys are currently open on the website and will close on September 13, 2019.
