CTE Funding and Monitoring

Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs may be funded through federal, state or local sources. These include federal Carl D. Perkins funds (Perkins V), state school aid categorical funds, and local vocational millage funds, as well as state foundation grant funds. Funds may be used to coordinate, implement, and improve CTE state-approved programs to meet the needs identified in the region. 

  • The Carl D. Perkins Act, referred to as Perkins V, is dedicated to increasing learner access to high-quality Career Technical Education (CTE) programs of study.
  • The State Legislature has appropriated categorical funds under Section 61 in the State School Aid Act for support of secondary CTE programs.
  • In order to meet state and federal requirements, various monitoring activities have been developed. These activities also provide an opportunity for technical assistance.

CTE Teacher Recruitment and Retention

Intermediate school districts with a CTE teacher on staff or who pledge to hire a CTE teacher may apply for funding for the recruitment of, retention of, and coverage of continued education costs for CTE teachers.
