The 1994-96 Two-Year Plan for the Use of Federal Funds Available under the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act.
Wisconsin Technical Coll. System Board, Madison.
The stated purpose of the Carl D. Perkins Vocational, Technical, and Applied Technology Act is to make the United States more competitive in the world economy by developing more fully the academic and occupational skills of all segments of the population. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) proposes to achieve this purpose by concentrating resources on promoting and developing Tech Prep and Youth Apprenticeship programs in accordance with its School-to-Work initiative. The Wisconsin Technical College System Board (WTCSB) proposes to use its share of the federal funds to support activities that provide services for members of special populations and then for improving programs and services for all students. Of the $22,114,600 expected to be available to Wisconsin for each year of the 2-year period from July 1, 1994 to June 30, 1996, $11,006,800 will be administered by the WTCSB to support postsecondary and adult programs, services, and activities. The $2,102,200 reserved by the Act to develop Tech Prep program, services, and activities will be jointly administered by the WTCSB and the DPI. This document contains the 1994-96 Two-Year Plan adopted by the WTCSB. The plan constitutes the basis for the operation and administration of the state's vocational education program under the Perkins Act. Also included are assessment and funding provisions; a state profile; DPI/WTCSB needs assessment; DPI/WTCSB proposed use of Perkins funding; WTCBS/DPI Tech Prep provisions; DPI/WTCSB assurances and descriptions; and information on certification hearings, reviews, and responses.
