Four-Year Plan under the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act of 1998, 2000-2004.
Wisconsin Technical Coll. System Board, Madison.
This is a plan for the last four years of the Wisconsin Technical College System Board's five-year plan period covered by the latest amendments to the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act. The Carl D. Perkins Act of 1998 is a federally funded program designed to assist states in developing their academic, vocational, and technical education programs. Wisconsin has been allocated $22,997,200 for program year 2000-01 and for planning purposes it is assumed that the State will be eligible for at least this amount for the subsequent three years of the plan period. The transition plan served as a bridge between the provisions of the previous amendments (Perkins II) and the latest amendments (Perkins III). Of the $22,997,200 expected to be available to the State each year, $11,463,700 will be directly administered by the State Board to support postsecondary programs, services and activities. The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) will administer $9,235,900 to support secondary level programs, services and activities. The Governor's Work-Based Learning Board (GWLB) will administer $2,154100 available under Title II, Tech Prep, along with $143,500 of Title I State Leadership funds. The State's latest biennial budget bill created Governor's Work Based Learning Board. (JA)
