Perkins IV and Potential for Education Redesign Efforts
Perkins IV implementation within New Mexico continues to support the alignment of career-technical education with State initiatives relating to the redesign of secondary schools and enhanced collaboration with post secondary education.
The implementation of Perkins IV ensures that career-technical education programs are an integral part of these efforts.
The purpose of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV) is to assist states in developing a comprehensive system of Career-Technical Education.
Through the implementation of the 5-Year State Plan under Perkins IV, New Mexico seeks continued improvement in Career-Technical education programs by moving toward the deployment of the framework for 21st century learning at the secondary and post secondary levels using the career clusters framework.
