Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act

The Workforce Board is the Governor's designee for the oversight of funds received through the federal Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006--a multi-million dollar grant that helps educators better prepare students for the workplace through innovative teaching techniques and other strategies.

The Workforce Board's role includes preparing and adopting a state plan, tracking state-level expenditures, establishing and tracking performance targets and submitting annual reports to the U.S. Department of Education.

For 2017-18, Washington received $20.1 million. It's split between the Workforce Board, the state's community and technical colleges (State Board for Community and Technical Colleges) and the state's K-12 system (Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction).
