Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act

The Workforce Board is designated by the Governor and Legislature to oversee funds received through the federal Carl D. Perkins Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Act of 2018 (Perkins V)--a multi-million dollar federal 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).
