July 1, 2020
Happy New Year! We are pleased to let you know that earlier today, Wednesday, July 1, 2020, our office issued each State’s first installment of the Title I funds for Fiscal Year (FY) 2020-21 pursuant to the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006, as amended by the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V).
At that time, we also made each State's Grant Award Notification (GAN) document electronically available at https://www.g5.gov under the Grant Maintenance/Award Documents menu selection. If you had or continue to have any issues in accessing G5 or your GAN document, please call the G5 Help Desk at 888-336-8930.
We know that you, your school leadership, teachers, communities, and parents, families, and students continue adjusting to COVID-19. There is important, updated information available on the Department’s website COVID-19 Information and Resources for Schools and School Personnel to support all students whose learning was impacted by COVID-19. These past months have certainly highlighted the need for all education to be relevant to 21st-century realities. High-quality CTE programs are a critical way to help learners of all ages and to get our economy back up and running at full speed.
On behalf of the entire Division of Academic and Technical Education (DATE), thank you for your thoughtful and thorough work in compiling and submitting your State plans. Know that we are committed to supporting you to provide every student access to robust CTE programs.
Sharon Lee Miller
Director, Division of Academic and Technical Education
