Town Hall Call

OCTAE/DATE is instituting on a trial basis a Town Hall Call (THC). The THC will replace the quarterly NSWG calls of the past. We envision a video conference call format with time allotted for questions from states. The Perkins Regional Coordinators (PRC) will be responding to questions from the moderator with written or oral follow-up questions from states. The THC will begin with questions from the public notices on the CAR and State Plan as well as from state technical assistance meetings. Discussion and sharing among states will hopefully assist states and staff to find common areas of agreement and ways to provide the high quality CTE programs they are known for and continue into Perkins V.
