Adult CTE programs use Perkins funds to prepare students for employment in high-skill, high-wage, high-demand occupations. The Perkins legislation requires Adult programs to coordinate services with their Local Workforce Investment Boards (LWIB) to avoid duplication and to expand the range and accessibility of services (e.g., sharing of job development services).
Formula-derived agency allocations must amount to at least $50,000 to qualify for adult Perkins funds. This makes complete and accurate data reporting essential. Enrollments have been collected using the CTEDS report in the ASISTS system which is operated by a SED vendor. Starting with the 2015 collection, SED is asking that programs also submit enrollments on an electronic or paper format and send directly to the Perkins postsecondary office.
