Dear Colleagues –
We hope you had a joyful and restful holiday season! We are looking forward to another productive new year in 2018 and moving forward our efforts to prepare all students for college and careers.
Thank you for your efforts to submit your Perkins Consolidated Annual Reports (CARs) covering FY 2016-17, the tenth program year under the Perkins IV legislation. We know many of you worked long and hard on these reports over the holidays and we greatly appreciate your efforts.
Earlier this week, the DATE team began reviewing the narrative information, financial status reports (FSRs), and accountability data contained in your CAR reports. As in years past, we are reviewing your reports in light of the following criteria:
If your State received an extension for one or more portions of your report, we will complete your State’s review once all your information is submitted to us.
As in years past, we expect to complete our reviews and issue outcome letters to you in mid-March. If you have any questions about the CAR review process, please feel free to contact Edward Smith or Denise Garland (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com).
Sharon Lee Miller, Director
Division of Academic and Technical Education
