The Perkins program is the primary federal investment in career and technical education at both the secondary and postsecondary levels. The latest iteration of Perkins, known as Perkins V, was signed into law in 2018 as the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (SCATE). The Act, which took effect July 1, 2019, amends the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education (Perkins IV) Act of 2006 and reauthorizes Perkins for six years. The Act defines its purpose as “to develop more fully the academic knowledge and technical and employability skills of secondary education students and postsecondary education students who elect to enroll in CTE programs and programs of study. “
The Perkins law requires that states report annually on several core indicators of performance. The performance indicators are calculated at both the local agency and the state levels, and must be disaggregated by race, ethnicity, gender, and special population categories. This report is called the Consolidated Annual Report (CAR).
