Allocations are generated for all school districts and boards of cooperative educational services (BOCES) in the State for secondary career and technical education programs. School districts and BOCES that meet eligibility requirements for use of the funds may then apply for funds to support their career and technical education programs. Individual school districts unable to meet the eligibility requirements may elect to return the money to the Department or join together with other school districts to form a consortium that meets the eligibility requirements.
Potential Perkins IV allocations for adult career and technical education programs are generated for school districts and BOCES based on the number of students in career and technical education programs who are economically disadvantaged using federally approved criteria.
