Did You Know…?
This year we’re seeing less intentional connectivity in the SECONDARY applications to their technology centers.  Remember that in order to be in compliance with the requirements of Perkins funding, the program of study (not the same as a plan of study) should include courses that lead a student to a credential, licensure, certificate, or degree.   Continued emphasis will be placed on this requirement in FY16, partnerships between secondary, tech centers, and community colleges need to be clear and intentional if planning to request funding in FY16.

Did You Know…?
Special Populations (secondary and postsecondary) are not just academically disadvantaged (special education)?  Here are the categories as included in the Perkins legislation: 
  • individuals with disabilities; 
  • individuals from economically disadvantaged families, including foster children; 
  • individuals preparing for nontraditional fields; 
  • single parents, including single pregnant women; 
  • displaced homemakers; and 
  • individuals with limited English proficiency

Enjoy the holidays and time spent with family and friends…
