Carl Perkins IV

  • The Carl Perkins Career and Technical Education (CTE) Improvement Act was reauthorized in August 2006 and is not commonly referred to as Carl Perkins IV.  The purpose of the Carl Perkins IV grant is to provide individuals with the academic and technical skills that are necessary to be be successful in the workplace.  Carl Perkins IV provides support for current career and technical education that has been developed in schools.  The support of current CTE programs includes the preparation of students for postsecondary education and careers that students want to pursue.

    Career and technical education that is supported by Carl Perkins IV focuses on high school and college education that provides CTE students with:

    Rigorous academic subject matter.
    Job-related and employability skills including ethics in the workplace.
    Avenues for students to explore career interests.

    As with most federal funding, Carl Perkins IV has several requirements that are necessary in order to receive and implement those funds to support CTE programs throughout the district.  One of those requirements is having Carl Perkins IV student data available to the public.  Below is a link to the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development that provides access to that data.  

    To access the data for Southwest Region School District see the instructions below:

    1. Go to the EED CTE website at
    2. At the bottom of the page under "Carl Perkins IV Reports - Public Federal Reporting Requirements", choose the district name in the drop down menu.

    *Note - the targets for each category are derived from the federal targets for Carl Perkins IV. 

    *Note - Southwest Region School District did not receive Carl Perkins IV funding in the 2008-2009 school year, which is why the performance data for that school year is entered as 0%.
