Fund Code: 407
Perkins IV CTE Targeted Regional Collaboration Grant

Funds Allocated:$100,000 (Federal)
Funds Requested:$100,000
Purpose: The purpose of this federally funded targeted Career and Technical Education (CTE) Regional Consolidation, Innovative Non-Duplication and Increased Access grant is to support regional efforts to consolidate and eliminate duplication of existing programs within a specific geographical area; to allow districts to develop new scheduling strategies for technical education offerings which will offer new options for access to vocational technical education; and to develop a collaborative regional network that will plan and develop new CTE programs and initiatives that increase student access to CTE opportunities, specifically for level 5 districts within Hampden County. Hampden County was chosen because the funding source of this initiative is Carl Perkins Act Reserve funds, and Hampden County meets the Perkins criteria under Perkins Sections 131 and 132 for use of Perkins Reserve funds because it is (a) a county with more than 100 CTE/CVTE programs and therefore possesses a high number of CVTE programs according to Massachusetts criteria and (b) has a student enrollment of 3,000 students or more, meeting the Massachusetts definition of high student enrollment. Level 5 districts were targeted for funding for this initiative because of the level of technical assistance needed for these districts to improve performance. Eligible students include secondary and other students served under the Carl D. Perkins Improvement Career and Technical Education Improvement Act, P.L. 109-270. Services provided are to supplement currently funded local, state, and federal programs.
