The Ohio Department of Education, in collaboration with the Ohio Department of Higher Education, is holding public hearings on Ohio’s four-year (Fiscal Years 2020-2023) career and technical education plan, Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V). This law reauthorizes the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006, known as Perkins IV. Perkins V makes key changes to implementing career-technical education programs and administrative processes.
Ohio Department of Education staff will present a draft of Ohio’s plan and take comments during the two public comment hearings:
- Wednesday, Dec. 4, 10 a.m., Pike County Career Technology Center, 175 Beaver Creek Rd. Piketon; and
- Wednesday, Jan. 8, 10 a.m., Sandusky High School/Career Center, 2130 Hayes Ave., Sandusky.
We encourage you to share this public meeting announcement about this important plan with other stakeholders, including administrators, educators, employers, business leaders, students, families and community members.
