Carl Perkins Consortium
The major goal of the CESA #11 Carl Perkins Consortium is to support professional development to enhance the quality of career and technical education programs within the 7-12 system and to purchase resources that support the career and technical education professional development. These resources support teachers in Family & Consumer Education, Agriculture & Natural Resources Education, Business & Information Technology Education, Marketing Education, Technology & Engineering Education, Health Science Occupations Education and School Counselors.
The 2019-2020 school year focus continues to be developing and implementing Programs of Study (POS) related to the Career Clusters. This follows the major focus of the Federal Perkin's Legislation that was passed in 2006. Districts have a placeholder on the state website, and it is the responsibility of each CTE team/teacher to upload programs of study pertaining to their program area at:
CESA staff serve in the leadership role for this consortium. They also serve as the liaison between the technical colleges, state agencies, economic and workforce development agencies and other education & work related organizations on behalf of the consortium members. Staff time may be requested for work in district, or groups of teachers may come to CESA #11 for specific purposes. More of the in-district time is being requested Programs of Study development. CESA also maintains and updates the CESA # 11 CTE Library. Consortium members provide data to complete the CTEERS report, which is used to determine the status of district compliance with grant assurances.
CESA staff oversees all other reports, data requests and applications required by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction regarding the CESA #11 Carl Perkins Consortium. Common Core State Standards are part of the consortium work.
