SUCCESS HAS NO GENDER
Recruiting and Retaining
Non-Traditional CTE Students in Your Program
Each State and District that receives Perkins funding must demonstrate “continuous improvement”
in the percentage of students who participate in and complete CTE Programs of Study. Across PA, most districts and CTCs are not meeting expectations in the non-Traditional Participation and Completion Perkins indicators.
While we are at 30%, we have not increased at a rate that the state expects (hit a plateau). We have to show at least a 1% gain.
