The State Perkins Accountability Congress (SPAC) is an initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE), Division of Academic and Technical Education (DATE) to support accountability for career and technical education (CTE) programs funded by the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins).

The SPAC provides an opportunity for the Department and states to engage in dialogue around approaches for measuring the performance of these programs. SPAC recommendations will help inform reauthorization discussions and the development of guidance to assist states in implementing future Perkins accountability requirements. Learn more.
