Want to know more about what’s in—and what’s required by—the new federal law on career and technical education? If so, this is the webinar for you.
On July 31, 2018, the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act, the bill to replace the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins), became law.
This webinar, held on September 26, 2018, provided an overview of what’s in the new law, which will go into effect on July 1, 2019, plus how the new law can specifically support the implementation of high-quality Linked Learning in California.
The webinar also highlighted specific strategies that educators and community members can use to inform the development of the state plans required under the new law. Similar to the state plans required under the Every Student Succeeds Act, states must develop plans describing how they plan to implement the Perkins law to ensure that all students are truly college and career ready upon graduating from high school.
To help educators and advocates learn more about what the updated law means for career and technical education (CTE), the Alliance for Excellent Education has created three fact sheets on 1) changes in the new law; 2) information about accountability systems for CTE, and 3) opportunities in the new law to support Linked Learning and college and career pathways.
Support for this webinar is provided by the James Irvine Foundation.
