Career Pathways Grant (CPG): Technical Assistance (TA) for New Credentials  

On May 29, 2020, the United States Department of Education (USED) approved the Michigan 4-year State Plan, covering Fiscal Years (FY) 2020-23, to implement the requirements of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education (CTE) Act of 2006, as amended by the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V).  Michigan is required to implement postsecondary recognized credentials for each CTE state-approved program. 

In 2020-2021, Career Pathways Grant (CPG) recipients worked with teachers and employers to identify credentials for seven state-approved CTE programs.  Each CPG team recommended credentials which were vetted through the Michigan Department of Education CTE quality checklist.  Each credential is aligned to the specific CTE standards within a high-quality CTE program of study.  Educators and school administrators will be introduced to these credentials through several Technical Assistance (TA) sessions.
