State of Idaho CTE Perkins V

"Perkins V Focus and Opportunity for Idaho The Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (generally referred to as Perkins V) provides an opportunity for Career and Technical Education to help drive Idaho towards our goal of 60% of Idahoans between the ages of 25 and 34 possessing a degree or certificate by 2025, improve the occupational outlook of our students, and provide the skilled workforce Idaho employers need. The Act also supports the recommendations of Idaho’s 2017 Workforce Development Task Force, to build CTE secondary and postsecondary program capacity to meet workforce demand."

Dear Stakeholder,

At LC State’s Division of Career & Technical Education (CTE), we take pride in offering programs that address the employment needs of local and regional employers, integrating proven methodology, and providing cutting-edge technology.

Perkins V, the first re-authorization of the Federal CTE statute in more than a decade, offers a new opportunity to evaluate and enhance our Career & Technical Education Programs by encouraging collaboration with a variety of stakeholders including:

  • Representatives from programs at both secondary and post-secondary levels
    Teachers, instructors, and faculty
    Career guidance and academic counselors
    Administrators and principals
    Specialized instructional support personnel and professionals
  • Representatives of the Workforce Development Council or their local affiliates
  • Representatives of local or regional economic development organizations, businesses, and industries
  • Parents and students
  • Representatives of special populations
  • Representatives of regional or local agencies serving out-of-school youth, homeless children and youth, and at-risk youth
  • Representatives of Native American Tribes and Tribal organizations

In order to accomplish this, we strongly encourage all of our stakeholders to fill out the following short anonymous survey that will be used to assess and continually improve our CTE programs. Answers will be tabulated and results will be posted as they are compiled.

Anonymity in this research is designed to protect the privacy of participants while collecting, analyzing, and reporting data to better serve our students, their career endeavors, our community and our region. We do not have access and will not obtain any personal, identifying information in this qualitative study.

Thank you for your participation!

Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment

Perkins V legislation (the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act) includes a new requirement for local eligible recipients to conduct a comprehensive local needs assessment (CLNA) of every CTE program and needs to be updated every two years. This requirement translates the language of the law into tangible steps for analyzing data from local and regional labor, industry and educational entities. It provides the foundation of Perkins V implementation at the local level and drives the development of the local application and future spending decisions.

The CLNA has provided an insightful opportunity as we encouraged local and regional stakeholders to provide their thoughts and visions for the future of Lewis-Clark State College’s Career & Technical Education Programs. This rigorous in-depth process has allowed LCSC to take a look at our CTE programs and has helped us to identify areas that can lead to increased opportunities for student success, program quality and equity.

The CLNA also encompassed consultation regarding LCSC’s overall CTE offerings and measures:

· Performance on federal accountability indicators

· Alignment to labor market needs

· Scope, size and quality of programs offered

· Progress toward implementing programs and programs of study

· Recruitment, retention and training of faculty and staff

· Progress toward improving access and equity
