The Colorado Five-Year State Plan for Career and Technical Education under the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act of 1998.
Community Colleges of Colorado, Denver.
With the passage of the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act of 1998, career and technical education in Colorado entered a new era. This monograph presents the five-year plan for the use of federal vocational funds during fiscal years 2000-2005. As one of a series of plans that interrelate and establish a vision for the Colorado Community College and Occupational Education System (CCCOES), this plan is driven by the Board's Cornerstones. To ensure effectiveness, this plan and those eligible recipients receiving resources under this plan must adhere to the Cornerstones which mark the CCCOES: Accessibility, Learning and Learning-Centered, Community Connectedness, and Market Alignment. This report contains the following sections: Introduction to the Plan, which includes an overview and a discussion of the system cornerstones, regional work teams, and research; Planning, Coordination, and Collaboration, which includes information on public hearings and consultation and activities to allow participation in the state planning process; Program Administration, which looks at activities designed to meet or exceed state adjusted levels of performance and how students' academic and technical skills will be improved; Accountability and Evaluation; Special Populations and Other Groups; Tech Prep; and Financial Requirements, which discusses such items as assurances, compliance, and fund allocation. (Contains 12 appendices.) (VWC)
