Accountability for Results

Congress made accountability for results a central focus of Perkins IV, setting out new performance requirements for states and local programs. These requirements were established to assess the effectiveness of the state in achieving statewide progress in career and technical education, and to optimize the return of investment of Federal funds in career and technical education activities.

Under Perkins IV, states are required to report annually on the core indicators of performance. States are also required to report disaggregated data on the performance of students in special population categories described in the law, as well as gender, race, and ethnicity.

The Reports to Congress on the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV) detail the status of the state administered grant programs authorized under the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006.
