Klein, Steven
Online Submission
To support states in improving the quality of their Perkins accountability data, the Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE), US Department of Education, invited State Directors of Career-Technical Education to submit requests for individualized technical assistance. In response to a request by the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) in association with the New Mexico Association for Community Colleges, MPR Associates, Inc. researchers provided targeted technical assistance to support the state in communicating federal and state accountability requirements to secondary and postsecondary Perkins sub-recipients, in reviewing its current state data collection systems and local performance data, and in establishing a plan of action for improving data quality and use. This report summarizes facilitators' meeting notes and offers recommendations to support the NMPED in structuring technical assistance outreach to secondary and postsecondary career technical education providers. Appended are: (1) meeting agenda and a copy of session handouts; (2) copy of the OVAE measurement guidebook; (3) Quick Reference Guide; (4) an example of a student survey used by Lewis and Clark Community College in Illinois; (5) an example of a data sharing agreement between the Illinois State Board of Education and the U.S. Office of Personnel Management; (6) memo on the legality of transferring student identifiers from the Illinois Board of Education; and (7) California's State Plan for Vocational and Technical Education.
