    May 17, 2017 — Committee Vote: Career and Technical Education Law Reauthorization — Vote to Report

    Update the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 by aligning education programs with then needs of local employers.

    The bill would take effect July 1, 2018, and would clarify that states must set their performance targets for the career and technical education programs based on what was described in their state plans. It would require states to consult with state-level stakeholders before revising an ineffective performance improvement plan.

    It would limit the Education secretary's ability to withhold funding from states who do not meet the performance goals laid out in a revised performance improvement plan. It would strengthen the secretary's ability to provide technical assistance, monitoring, and oversight related to the implementation of revised performance improvement plans.

    It would allow states to decrease their funding to career and technical education programs by 10 percent after the first year of implementing the program.

    It also would extend the deadline for the secretary to review state plans from 90 to 120 days.
