Perkins V: Arkansas State Plan Updates

On July 31, 2018, President Donald Trump signed the “Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act” (Perkins V) into law (Public Law 115-224). This Act reauthorizes the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV) and will go into effect on July 1, 2019. The first year of implementation will be the transition year when eligible agencies will submit a one-year transition plan in May 2019 for the period of July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020. The full four-year plan covering all the requirements of the Act will be submitted in April 2020 for the period of July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2024.
