Support to States

The Division of Academic and Technical Education (DATE), in collaboration with contractors at RTI International, offers customized technical assistance to states on Perkins accountability issues. The technical assistance team invites states to submit an application for technical assistance each fall and selects states for participation through a competitive review process.

The modules present findings from technical assistance projects that have relevance for the field. Although specific states may serve as examples, the modules provide generalized resources and guidance that meet common state needs and are applicable nationwide.
