Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006

The President signed the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act of 2006 into law on August 12, 2006.

The Act calls for an increase focus on the academic achievement of career and technical education students, strengthening connections between secondary and postsecondary education, and improving state and local accountability.

Towards that end, the State was required to submit a State Plan that outlined it's goals and objectives over the life of the legislation.

The Consolidated Annual Report (CAR) is a final report that is due to the federal government each December and outlines those activities undertaken with the Perkins funding and how well the state did in meeting it's objectives, goals, and expected state levels of performance as outlined under the Act.
