Amendments to the California State Plan for the Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act.
Stanley, Patricia; And Others
The Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act (VATEA) of 1990 modified the allocation of federal resources to support vocational education. The intent of the law was to provide support for program improvement and to ensure access for students from special populations. The California State Plan (CSP), designed to meet the requirements of the VATEA, was approved by the U.S. Department of Education and published in April 1992. In May 1992, public hearings on proposed amendments to the CSP were held. The proposed amendments addressed the following eight areas: (1) Core Measures and Standards; (2) Division of Title II, Part C, Funds Between Secondary School Programs (Section 231) and Postsecondary and Adult Programs (Section 232) Purposes; (3) Waiver Request for Distributing Postsecondary and Adult Vocational Programs (Section 232) Funds; (4) Use of Funds for Technical Assistance from Title III, Part A, State Assistance for Vocational Education Support Programs by Community-Based Organizations, and Title III, Part E, Technical-Preparation Education Programs; (5) Section 225, Programs for Criminal Offenders; (6) California Department of Education State Program and State Leadership Funds, Partnership Academies; (7) Estimated Grant Award Revisions; and (8) Process To Amend the CSP. The amended CSP was submitted to the Department of Education in June 1992. This report reviews each area of the CSP in which changes have been proposed, summarizing testimony received during the public hearings; provides copies of correspondence accompanying the proposal to ED; and presents a copy of the changed sections of the CSP.
