About this webinar:

The newly reauthorized federal CTE law (Perkins V) offers increased opportunities for states, districts and afterschool programs to collaborate and help students find and complete meaningful career pathways. With the new CTE state plan guide just released by the Department of Education– the planning process for setting a statewide vision for career readiness and spending about $1.2 billion in federal funds has officially begun and a great time for action is now.

In this webinar, afterschool state leaders can learn more about the new CTE law, how to connect their work to the goals of Perkins V, and how to step into the planning process – hearing from other afterschool network leads and education partner, Advance CTE.
