Examples of a District Plan and Objectives


Here is an example of a district's summary and mission statement. It is helpful to see how particular districts have elected to begin using Perkins funding. This summary was, of course, expanded to create a detailed proposal for funding.

Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Plan
1991/92 through 1993/94

Background:

The district has received vocational education funds for many years. Over these years Congress has revised the legislation to reflect current priorities. The Perkins Act of 1990 revised the act to improve vocational education for special populations. More than any revision to vocational education funds in recent years, the act is very clear on what may and may not be done. The State Department of Education has been the lead agency in developing the State Vocational Education Plan that complies with the federal legislation so that the State can receive its share of the funds. In turn, each district was required to write a district plan stating how the district would use the vocational education funds to improve vocational education in the district as required by the Perkins Act and the State Plan. Each district was allocated its share of the funds based on a formula that takes into account the district's Chapter One population, number of students with IEPs (special education), ESL students and the number of students in vocational classes.

Our district plan calls for a number of improvement activities. The new 9th grade English Career Choices program is an example of what has already been done. The primary remaining task is to develop a career path in business education.

Requirements:

Our plan must:

  • Ensure the full participation of students with special needs and strategies to recruit special needs students into the program.

  • Provide for a career path in business.

  • Provide for the integration of academic and vocational classes (career paths).

  • Infuse vocationally relevant material in academic courses.

  • Include local business representatives to assist in choosing work place relevant curriculum (employability skills). Course planning and assessment will reflect employability skills.

  • Include ROP courses where appropriate.

  • Articulate with community colleges.

  • Career path must be ready for student enrollment by fall 1992.
