Under Perkins IV, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Office of the Chancellor and the Minnesota Department of Education are responsible to annually review each consortium?s Perkins program based on its performance on federally determined accountability indicators. Minnesota will monitor compliance with this requirement by collecting Improvement Reports or Improvement Plans.
When does my consortium prepare an Improvement Report vs. a full Improvement Plan?
If the consortium scored between 90 and 99% of their negotiated target for any indicator, they will be required to write an improvement report describing how or what they will do to increase their scores and must be completed for each indicator where a performance gap existed.
If the consortium scored below the 90% level of their negotiated target for any indicator, a written improvement plan will need to be submitted for each indicator where a performance gap lower than 90% occurred. The full Improvement Plan asks for more detailed information that will allow the State Perkins staff to assist your consortium to identify resources and interventions appropriate to address your situation.
If you have questions, please contact Denise Roseland at (651) 201-1667 or email@example.com
The monitoring review provides an opportunity to not only meet compliance requirements, but also provide technical assistance, foster continuous improvement, and develop a better understanding of local performance, operations and issues facing CTE, schools and colleges. Minnesota Career and Technical Education fosters continuous improvement. Lessons learned from monitoring visits will be shared with local consortia and inform the state CTE leaders of policies and procedures that need to be modified.
