Background

The Strengthening Career & Technical Education (CTE) for the 21st Century Act, also known as Perkins V, is the largest federal funding source to operationalize CTE programs at the secondary and postsecondary levels. Perkins V provides approximately $6 million annually in federal funding to Delaware, aiming to “expand opportunities for every student (youth and adults) to explore, choose, and follow career pathways to earn credentials of value.” Perkins V requires every state to submit a state plan for any fiscal year (FY) under the Act. A four (4)-year full state plan will be developed for federal FY24 to FY27 or school years 2024-25 to 2027-28, encompassing all administrative and financial activities under the Act.
