Agenda Item Summary: The 2016-2017 Local Plan for Career and Technical Education (CTE) supports ACPS Strategic Plan GOAL 1: Academic Excellence and Educational Equity- Every student will be academically successful and prepared for life, work, and college.
Background: The Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 and Standards of Quality require each school division to develop and receive local school board approval of a plan for Career and Technical Education that includes specific information regarding program and service descriptions and how grant funds will be used.

The Alexandria 2016-2017 Local Plan for Career and Technical Education describes activities and services proposed for the Alexandria City Public Schools Career and Technical Education Program. The plan also assures that all program activities and expenditures are in accordance with the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 and all applicable Virginia Public School Laws.

The Alexandria Plan will provide $220,934.18 to improve and modernize existing Career and Technical Education program offerings, update technology to align with industry standards, and provide staff development opportunities for instructional staff. Grant funding is allocated by formula, based on ACPS enrollment and special populations served.

The Alexandria Plan contains local assurances and conditions of the grant; Virginia and Perkins performance standards as identified in the Career and Technical Education Annual Performance Report (APR); CTE Management Schedules; proposed new pathway plan of study in Business Management and Administration; financial data; and proposed budget for the use of 2016-2017 federal funds.
