Perkins V Local Comprehensive Needs Assessment

Fleck Education has created a new four-step tool that states and local CTE programs can use to meet the new Perkins V Local Comprehensive Needs Assessment requirements. The document details what local CTE data could be collected and provides local discussion prompts, texts of the law and a brainstorming form to begin identifying required stakeholders to involve.

The tool is completely free, allowing states/regions the ability to edit and adjust the information as needed.

For more information or to get a Word version of this document for editing, contact Matt at or at 317.748.0108.

2019 Indiana CTE Cohort Visits

Beginning January 2019, Indiana CTE Directors now have the option of requesting a one-day site visit conducted by a cohort of 3-5 veteran CTE Directors to review and discuss their CTE programs and progress.  Site visits are:

  • Completely voluntary
  • Scheduled on a day and time that works best for the CTE Director
  • Supportive, collegial, and confidential – information is for the CTE Director only
  • Focused on sharing ideas, resources, and promising practices with colleagues
  • Operated through IACTED with the support of the Indiana Department of Education

CTE Cohort Visits provide a positive, non-punitive way for CTE Directors to collaborate and discuss a district’s positive practices, areas of concern, answer questions, and explore new ideas. Similar cohort visits, conducted in the past, were well-received and a positive way for Indiana CTE programs to continuously improve.
