The Perkins IV Basic Secondary CTE Assistance Programs are funded by the Carl D. Perkins Federal Program and the Technical Education Act of 2006-Title I VATEA.
Its purpose is to improve career and technical education at the secondary level. Grant requirements are to make CTE programs accessible to all populations, prepare individuals to enter employment and/or post-secondary education, promote articulation among secondary and post-secondary education, promote participation for all special needs populations into CTE programs, coordinate the integration of embedded academic credit into CTE instruction and design, and implement and assess the effectiveness of secondary instructional models that provide a career and technical education.
