Perkins V: Where We Are & Where We’re Going

September 12, 2018 at 1:00 pm EST

By: Michael Brustein, Esq.

Course Description: On July 25, 2018, in a surprise move, the House approved the entire Senate bill without change. Unfortunately, the Senate bill provided less flexibility than the House version adopted last year. Our webinar on Perkins V will track all of the substantive changes from the current law to the new law. Transition Plans will take effect on July 1, 2019. So much needs to be done between now and the time the State submits its Plan to OCTAE, and the locals submit their plans and local needs assessment to the State (as to how federal funds will be used to reduce the gaps in the state determined levels of performance). The accountability provisions have changed, as well as the definition of CTE, programs of study, and special populations. Where will the resources come from to support the new stakeholder input on accountability? Will LEAs and colleges receive less funding due to the reserve increase to 15%? What are the new mandates on reserve funds? Is there more flexibility on the use of CTE funds for CTSO activities? How will the new foundation formula impact states with reduced population counts? You’ll get the answers to these and other questions in this webinar.
