The mission of the Carl Perkins Title 1 C Program in the Career Technical Education Department at Mt. San Jacinto College is to achieve excellence in developing more fully the academic, career and technical skills of students who elect to enroll in CTE programs at the College by*:
- Building on the efforts of states and localities to develop challenging academic standards;
- Promoting the development of services and activities that integrate academic, career and technical instruction, and that link secondary and postsecondary education for participating CTE students;
- Increasing state and local flexibility to provide services and activities designed to develop, implement, and improve CTE, including tech prep education; disseminating national research, and providing professional development and technical assistance to improve CTE programs, services, and activities;
- Providing technical assistance that promotes leadership, initial preparation, and professional development at the state and local levels; and that improves the quality of CTE teachers, faculty, administrators, and counselors;
- Supporting partnerships among secondary schools, postsecondary institutions, baccalaureate degree granting institutions, area CTE schools, local workforce investment boards, business and industry, and intermediaries; and
- Providing individuals with opportunities throughout their lifetimes to develop, in conjunction with other education and training programs, the knowledge and skills needed to keep the United States competitive.
* Note: The bulleted items above are the goals of the 2006 Carl Perkins IV Act
The Career Technical Education Act of 2006 was signed into law on August 12, 2006. The Act required that the state submit a new State Plan for Career Technical Education in Spring 2008. The Chancellor's Office developed these pages to bring the human resources of California and the community colleges in particular to bear on the development of issue papers that were used to inform policy as the new state plan for Career Technical Education was developed. The final Plan and an Executive Summary are available at.
The planning and development resources and documents for California’s implementation of the new Perkins (Perkins IV) Act are being made available to inform and generate input.
At Mt. San Jacinto College, Perkins funds are distributed to the Career Technical Education programs through a competitive mini grant process.
