June will be a busy, yet exciting month! Among our key activities will be hosting the 2013 Virtual Data Quality Initiative, which will be simulcast from OVAE’s headquarters at the Potomac Center Plaza in Washington, DC, on June 27-28, 2013. The theme of this year’s institute will be "refining program evaluation and data use strategies." We hope that you, your state staff, and local partners will join us for this exciting event! More information is available under "What’s New."
Also this month, DATE staff will be attending the State Career Clusters Institute from June 10-12, 2013, in Fort Worth, TX, and the Council of Chief State School Officer’s 2013 National Conference on Student Assessment from June 20-22, 2013, in Washington, DC.
In follow-up to the meeting, we are reposting the career pathways memo that was jointly issued by the U.S. Departments of Education, Labor and Health and human Services. We are considering ways that we can update and build upon this letter to more fully support your work in building statewide career pathways systems.
Finally, we will be wrapping up Perkins performance level negotiations with States and preparing to issue State’s July 1, 2013, grant award letters. We are also finalizing a set of Q&As that will be issued to States covering items that were raised at our April 17 State CTE directors meeting.
This website is a resource and information-sharing portal for Federal, State, and local policymakers, practitioners, and stakeholders to join in the CTE transformation! It includes information on current CTE legislation, grants, and accountability data, as well as resources for developing and implementing rigorous, state-of-the-art career and technical education programs. If you do not find what you need, please contact us and let us know how we can be of assistance.
