Carl D. Perkins V State Plan: Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment and Local Application

The Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V), passed by Congress and signed into law in 2018, requires that each local community develop and submit a Local Needs Assessment prior to receiving Perkins V grant funds.  Working with the Ohio Department of Higher Education and local stakeholders, the Department of Education developed a Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment and Application to meet all the new federal requirements and state priorities.  The Comprehensive Local Needs Assessments help Ohio’s Career-Technical Education provider plan and deliver a robust system of high quality CTE programming, focusing on high-wage, high-skill, and in-demand occupations, and serving all the citizens of Ohio equitably.
