The Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) provides state leaders with a lever to transform and improve their Career Technical Education (CTE) systems. Similar to Perkins IV, Perkins V maintains the requirement that the state plan be developed in consultation with a number of entities and in some cases, identifies when this consultation must occur and for what purpose. In addition, Perkins V introduces some new stakeholder engagement and public comment requirements. This tool from Advance CTE outlines the types of engagement required in Perkins V and was designed to help states begin the brainstorming process for their engagement efforts related to Perkins V.
