Dear Colleagues —
On behalf of the U.S. Departments of Transportation, Education, and Labor, we are pleased to invite representatives from the transportation industry, workforce boards and job centers, community colleges, technical education initiatives, apprenticeship programs, and others to join a National Virtual Forum entitled “Jobs in Transportation: Aligning Skills Training with Job Demand.” The forum will be held on Wednesday, December 16, 2015, from 1:00-2:30 pm (EST). During the forum, participants will discuss strategies to align skills training with transportation job demand, as well as learn about new tools and resources available to help advance transportation career pathways at the state and local levels. Space is limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible (see the Calendar event on the PCRN homepage).
Also, we remind you of the approaching December 31, 2015, deadline for submission of your State’s Consolidated Annual Report (CAR). If you have any questions about your submission, please contact your Regional Accountability Specialist (RAS) or Sharon Head at Sharon.Head@ed.gov.

Director, Division of Academic and Technical Education
