Equity Labs Schedule

September 10, 2019 8:11 AM | Ohio ACTE (Administrator)

The federal Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) was signed into law on July 31st, 2018. Perkins V made changes to the annual federal appropriation for  Career and Technical Education (CTE).  This legislation provides new opportunities to improve CTE and enables more flexibility to meet the needs of learners, educators and employers. Ohio is committed to ensuring students have equitable access, engagement and performance in all aspects of their education, including career-technical education programs.

Equity labs will identify access, engagement and performance gaps; analyze the causes of those gaps; and create a plan to reduce those gaps in coming years.  Lab activities will include data review and analysis in three main categories; identifying gaps for subgroups and subpopulations in those categories; and planning activities to address identified gaps.  The resulting plan will be included as part of the Perkins V local needs assessment and application. Districts should prepare to register key team members that will assist in implementing equity-focused processes.  Team size should not exceed six (6) members.  Each member must register individually.
