Perkins IV


The Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006 sets federal policy and primary funding for career technical education and Tech Prep. The core of Perkins IV is enhanced accountability to raise student achievement. Each state’s five-year plan establishes specific performance targets for these goals.

  • Increase the academic achievement of career and technical education students

  • Strengthen connections among secondary and postsecondary education

  • Improve state and local accountability

By 2014 all Ohio career technical programs will transition to Tech Prep. The state’s Perkins IV Plan raises academic expectations, strengthens postsecondary and business connections and implements performance standards.
