Narrative Questions:

Question 1: What activities did you provide to encourage improved student academic
achievement at the secondary level?

Current research shows that when students engage in informed career planning activities,
academic achievement increases. eCIS (career information on the Internet at www.idahocis.org)
is the primary information resource used to enable those activities. It is currently being used in
225 secondary schools in Idaho representing approximately 93% of the school districts. Current
state and national information about occupations including the Military, education and training
programs including apprenticeship, colleges and universities, financial aid and scholarships,
career pathways, job search and resume writing is being accessed through CIS by 113,980
people in Idaho. This accounts for almost 12% of the population in the state. Located within the
software students and clients have access to an online portfolio that can be used to save
favorites, set career goals, record education and work history, plan for classes, and participate
in *assessments and *academic test prep. As of May 30, 2006 the combined total number of
times eCIS has been accessed for the 332 current sites was 224,299. The total number of CIS
Portfolios created for current sites was 43,854. In addition to the information, users have on-line
access to scholarship, school, graduate school and occupation sorting programs. Assessments
include skills, interests and work values. Students use CIS information and assessments in
career centers, a variety of classes and at home with their parents to explore career
opportunities, determine the education or training required for occupations of interest, and select
postsecondary schools that offer degrees and certificates in those programs. Idaho’s sixteen
occupational cluster information and Career Pathway files help middle and junior high school
students learn about broad career fields including helpful high schools courses they can take to
begin preparing for those career fields. To assist teachers on-line learning activities are
provided relating to all aspects of career development. They can be sorted by subject matter,
career development competency and Idaho Achievement Standards needed for graduation in
Idaho.

* The availability of certain assessments and academic test prep is limited to those schools or
agencies that have purchased these modules in addition to the basic CIS system.




                                                5
Question 2: What activities did you provide to encourage increased levels of student
transitions to postsecondary instruction?

When students make education and career plans based on realistic information, they are much
more likely to continue on to postsecondary education. Through CIS on the Internet, we
provided information on 503 occupational descriptions including 474 occupational videos and
240 in Spanish. Each occupation is linked to the education and training that intends to prepare
people for that occupation. Each education and training program is then linked to schools in
Idaho and the nation that offer degrees or certificates in those programs including
apprenticeships. By exploring occupations, students can easily see how much and what kind of
education is necessary to be successful representing the critical connection between education
and work. CIS provides the information to students that is necessary for making informed
choices and to transition from high school to postsecondary institutions, the military or the
workforce. Students can begin exploring occupations by sorting on wages, educational
requirements and 19 other variables. The can learn the educational requirements for any
occupation of interest, see the related educational program that will prepare them and find a
school that offers a degree or certificate in that program. They can sort colleges and universities
on a number of variables and then see the program offerings, tuition and fees, admission
requirements, and access the web site for each. In addition, students can sort and locate
scholarship resources to help them pay for college.

Question 3: What activities did you provide to encourage parental involvement in student
career exploration, career choice, and educational preparation?

Our goal is for people in Idaho to know that eCIS (career information on the Internet) is available
and accessible to parents as well as students from any location--school, home, library, internet
cafés, etc. We provide bookmarks with the URL address to teachers and counselors so they
can share them any time they meet with parents. Students are also encouraged to create an
on-line portfolio (My CIS Folder) so they can have their own unique name and password and
save items of interest including assessment results. On-line career development activities
within each electronic folder are designed to be used by students with their parents. When
asked, a great majority of parents expressed appreciation for the ability of being able to access
information, save assessment results, and participate in career development learning activities
with their children at home through eCIS. In addition to relying on teachers and counselors
alone, parents are directly notified that eCIS information is available at home at every
opportunity including career fairs, college fairs, school parent nights, exhibits, CIS presentations
and faculty and staff training. CIS staff participated in the South West Idaho College Fair
helping students sort and explore colleges and universities with their parents. Finally, the Idaho
Attorney General will again send a letter to the parents of all high school juniors and seniors in
Idaho encouraging them to use CIS information with their sons and daughters at home to
explore career options make educational plans and find money to go to school.




                                                 6
Question 4: What activities did you provide to support career guidance and academic
counseling at the secondary level?

Teachers, counselors and administrators in Idaho report that CIS information, assessments and
learning activities through eCIS is the primary resource used in their career guidance and
academic counseling programs. New this year is the eCIS opening web page designed
specifically for secondary students. We provide 101 on-line career guidance curriculum units to
counselors so they can work cooperatively with participating teachers to deliver instructional
units to students. Further, CIS provides academic counseling programs with information about
4,000 two- and four-year colleges and universities, the ability to sort those institutions on items
of personal preference and a graduate school-sorting program. Beyond that, CIS provides the
information that is necessary for career guidance and academic programs to successfully help
students make career decisions, educational plans and transition into postsecondary education
and work. The following information is delivered to approximately 93% of Idaho school districts:
Descriptions of 2000-3000 words in length, each containing 16 separate topics of information on
503 occupations, over 700 descriptions of educational programs of 300-500 words each, links to
all colleges and universities in Idaho and the nation, financial aid and scholarship information for
money to attend school, Military work life and occupations, and supporting information that
includes Career Clusters, Career Pathways, writing college essays, getting accepted by a
college, making educational decisions, and financial aid basics.

Question 5: What activities did you provide to support career guidance and academic
counseling at the postsecondary level?

CIS information and assessments identified in the above Item were delivered to colleges of
technology, community colleges and universities in Idaho at 26 locations. It was also used with
clients at 24 Job Service Local office, 29 Vocational Rehabilitation Local officer, 8 adult
correctional facilities and 28 other organizations, many of which serve postsecondary and adult
populations. These groups access a front page in eCIS that is specifically designed for adults.
CIS information on the Internet is used at these sites to help postsecondary students research
scholarships, choose majors, and see occupations related to those majors. Like we do for
secondary schools, CIS staff provides training and technical assistance to all of these sites. In
addition, our seven fall career development workshops were conducted in cooperation with and
on the campuses of the college or university in each region of the state. Break-out sessions
specifically designed for adults and postsecondary students focused on using career information
to explore and select college majors, find scholarship money help pay for school, make
successful career decisions, prepare resumes, prepare for job interviews and design a plan to
find work.

Question 6: What activities did you provide that support Departmental Initiatives (e.g.
CCTI, State Scholars)?

All CIS information development, information delivery and career development training activities
support Departmental Initiatives including No Child Left Behind, the College and Careers
Transitions Initiative and the State Scholars Initiative. There is widespread evidence recently
documented in The Educational, Social and Economic Value of Informed and Considered
Career Decisions that exposure to career information to help make good career decisions with
related educational plans is linked to students taking more rigorous academic courses, getting
better grades, participating more and longer in education and dropping out of school less often.




                                                 7
 When students and their parents access CIS information and counselors and teachers get high
quality career development training, the link between postsecondary education and being
successful in the labor force becomes obvious. Students become more motivated because they
more clearly understand alternatives to their career future. Students, their parents, faculty and
staff all need facts about education and work to make successful career decisions. People
simply cannot choose what they do not know. CIS activities, with assistance from the ACRN
grant, provide these facts and empirical evidence of strong link between education and work. By
providing accurate information about academic and technical programs and linking those
programs to related careers, CIS assists and helps to ease students' transition from secondary
to postsecondary post-secondary education. CIS reinforces OVAE's mission to prepare young
people for high-demand jobs in and information- and knowledge-based economy. We
specifically identify high demand occupations by growth rate and numbers of annual openings,
show the educational programs that prepare people for those occupations and show the schools
that offer them whether it is a technical college, community college, university, apprenticeship
programs or Military training.

Question 7: What actions did you take to coordinate ACRN activities with those
authorized under section 15 of the Wagner-Peyser Act?

The Idaho CIS and the Department of Commerce and Labor’s Bureau of Research and Analysis
have a long history of close coordination and communication. This close cooperation has been
formally identified in Governor’s Executive Order No. 98-15. Under Sec. 15, (e) State
Responsibilities, the Idaho Department of Commerce and Labor has been designated as the
agency responsible for management and oversight of the statewide employment statistics
system involving collecting and disseminating data on the Idaho labor market including
employment projections and wage data. Executive Order 98-15 further establishes that the
Department shall continue to rely upon the Idaho SOICC, through the Idaho CIS, as a
dissemination mechanism of user-friendly occupational, educational and related career
information and for training and technical assistance. Idaho Works is the Department of
Commerce and Labor’s on-line system where Job Service applicants can register for work and
where employers can list job openings. CIS information is used in all Career One-Stop Offices
and by Job Service consultants to assist individuals in making informed career decisions,
educational plans, and preparing for their search for work. In providing this information, CIS
relies heavily on the valuable data on occupational employment, wages and outlook plus
industry and employer data that are collected and formatted by the Idaho Department of
Commerce and Labor.

The format of the six-year plan has been developed to standardize and simplify these
requirements. The format provides space for you to enter comments, additional categories, or
narratives needed to further describe or explain your local programs. Please provide a narrative
to help explain your program to plan reviewers. Additional information may be requested to
clarify the plan before final approval.

Consortium six-year plans must describe how the funds will be used for activities that are
mutually beneficial to all members of the consortium. Mutually beneficial is defined as: regional
and local consortia will serve as structures to provide services to all participating LEAs. Projects
will include shared activities that are defined as: (1) an activity that is conducted at a central
location with students from all member sites participating; or (2) an activity that is delivered at all
sites by a roving facilitator; or (3) a like activity that is provided at all sites under centralized
supervision and coordination.

DEFINITIONS




     17
                                  Perkins IV Definitions

Academic Skills Development/Remediation - Academic skills development is part of the
coherent sequence of courses in an approved professional-technical education program if it is
funded and administered by the technical college; is designed to develop strengths as well as to
review previous curricular areas of students who have not been involved in postsecondary
education or who have not been involved in postsecondary education for some time; improves
(i.e., review) a student's skills and knowledge deemed necessary to enter a professional-
technical education program in order to ensure a greater likelihood of success; and whose
students are reported to the Division of Professional-Technical Education on Forms 1054S and
1054Y. Academic skills development includes the assessment of academic proficiency and
developmental education.

Academic skills development does not include remedial education which is defined as a
duplication of a secondary program/course and support services in basic academic skills.
Remediation usually involves recent high school graduates or those students who did not
complete their secondary curriculum. Further, these students have little probability of success
without first developing special skills and knowledge through remedial course work.

Administration means activities necessary for the proper and efficient performance of the
recipient’s duties under the Act, including supervision of such activities. The term does not
include curriculum development activities, personnel development or research activities.

All Aspects of an Industry means strong experience in, and comprehensive understanding of,
the industry that the individual is preparing to enter, including information as described in §118.

Articulation Agreement means a written commitment –

(A)    that is agreed upon at the State level or approved annually by the lead administrators of
       (i)      a secondary institution and a postsecondary educational institution; or
       (ii)     a sub-baccalaureate degree granting postsecondary institution and a
                baccalaureate degree granting postsecondary educational institution; and

(B)    to a program that is –
       (i)     designed to provide students with a nonduplicative sequence of progressive
               achievement leading to technical skill proficiency, a credential, a certificate, or a
               degree; and
       (ii)    linked through credit transfer agreements between the 2 institutions described in
               clause (i) or (ii) of subparagraph (A) (as the case may be)

Career and Technical Education means organized educational activities that –

(A)    offer a sequence of courses that –

       (i)     provides individuals with coherent and rigorous content aligned with challenging
               academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to
               prepare for further education and careers in emerging professions;
       (ii)    provides technical skill proficiency, an industry recognized credential, a
               certificate, or an associate degree; and
       (iii)   may include prerequisite courses (other than a remedial course) that meet the
               requirements of this subparagraph; and

                                                18
(B)       include competency-based applied learning that contributes to the academic knowledge,
          higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes, general employability
          skills, technical skills, and occupation-specific skills, and knowledge of all aspects of an
          industry, including entrepreneurship, of an individual.


Career Guidance and Academic Counseling –

(1)       provides access for students (and parents, as appropriate) to information regarding
          career awareness and planning with respect to an individuals occupational and
          academic future; and

(2)       provides information with respect to career options, financial aid, and postsecondary
          options, including baccalaureate degree programs

Displaced Homemaker as an individual who –

(A)(i)    has worked primarily without remuneration to care for a home and family, and for that
          reason has diminished marketable skills;

  (ii)    has been dependent of the income of another family member but is no longer supported
          by that income; or

  (iii)   is a parent whose youngest depended child will become ineligible to receive assistance
          under part A of title IV of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) not later than 2
          years after the date on which the parent applies for assistance under such title; and

(B)       is unemployed or underemployed and is experiencing difficulty in obtaining or upgrading
          employment

The definition of displaced homemaker in Idaho Code is broader than the one above. Although
the state can be more stringent than the law, it cannot be less stringent. Therefore, the
definition of displaced homemaker in Perkins IV applies to federal funds.

Special Populations are:

(A)       Individuals with disabilities

(B)       Individuals from economically disadvantaged families, including foster children

(C)       Individuals preparing for non-traditional fields

(D)       Single parents, including single pregnant women

(E)       Displaced homemakers

(F)       Individuals with limited English proficiency

The law deleted ―individuals with other barriers to educational achievement‖ from the definition
of special populations.

Annual Applications must be submitted each year to apply for funds under Title I of Perkins IV.
An Annual Application must be submitted for each allowable activity you plan to fund during
FY2008.

Background

Perkins IV funds are intended to improve professional-technical education programs
through (1) student attainment of challenging academic and technical standards; (2) integration
of rigorous and challenging academic and career and technical instruction; (3) linkages between
secondary and postsecondary education; and (4) providing individuals with opportunities for
lifelong learning. Although rigorous and challenging academic standards are referenced
throughout Perkins IV, funds may not be used for academic programs.

Historically, federal professional-technical education funds have been targeted to promote
preparation in the skills that are needed by business and industry. The 2006 Amendments
(Perkins IV) build on this purpose by promoting the development of challenging academic and
technical standards including preparation for high skill, high wage, or high demand occupations
in current or emerging occupations.

Perkins I and II included special provisions for special population students. Perkins III replaced
the emphasis on special populations with increased accountability at the state and local levels.
Perkins IV builds on the increased accountability under Perkins III by requiring local education
agencies (LEAs) to set specific performance targets on each performance measure and be
responsible for meeting those targets. Additionally, Perkins IV imposes specific sanction
requirements for LEAs that do not meet their performance targets.

Accountability

The new accountability and sanction requirements will require each LEA to think more
strategically about the use of Perkins IV funds and to focus activities on effort that help meet
performance targets. At the secondary level, academic attainment will now have to be
measured by the academic assessments a state has approved under No Child Left Behind
(NCLB). Graduation rates will also have to be reported as defined in NCLB, and technical skill
proficiency will include student achievement on technical assessments that are aligned with
industry-recognized standards when possible.




                                             1
Professional Development

Under Perkins IV, professional development must be high quality, sustained, intensive and
focused on instruction, and increase the academic knowledge and understanding of industry
standards, as appropriate of professional-technical education teachers. Perkins funds can no
longer be used to fund one-day or short-term workshops or conferences that are not part of a
high quality, sustained and intensive professional development program.

Professional development activities should: (a) promote the integration of coherent and rigorous
academic content with professional-technical education curricula; (b) increase the percentage of
teachers that meet teacher certification or licensing requirements; (c) encourage applied
learning that contributes to the academic and professional-technical education knowledge of the
student; (d) provide the knowledge and skills necessary to work with and improve instruction for
special populations; and assist in accessing and using data.

Career Guidance and Academic Counseling

Career guidance and counseling activities (including recruitment) are limited to students who
are enrolled in professional-technical education programs. Programs for special
populations which include preliminary intake and related services to individuals prior to
enrollment in approved professional-technical education programs are an allowable activity
under Perkins IV. However, these programs should result in (a) enrollment of members of
special populations in professional-technical education; (b) retention of special populations
students in professional-technical education programs; or (c) employment for members of
special populations who graduate from professional-technical education programs.

Academic Skills Reinforcement

Academic skills reinforcement is defined as activities designed to enable professional-technical
education students to meet the local adjusted levels of performance for Reading/Language Arts
and Mathematics by using the contextual environment provided by professional-technical
education programs.

Perkins IV funds may be used to pay for costs associated with academic reinforcement for
professional-technical education students under the following conditions: (1) students are
enrolled in approved professional-technical education programs and activities are provided as
part of the professional-technical education curriculum; (2) activities are designed to enable the
professional-technical education students to meet the local adjusted levels of performance on
the Perkins IV Performance Measures for Reading/Language Arts and Mathematics; and (3)
funds are used to supplement, not supplant, state and local funds.

A current Consortium Agreement covering Fiscal Year 2008 must be on file with the
Division of Professional-Technical Education or submitted with the annual application.




                                              7
BUDGET

A Form CS5/10F, State Division of Professional-Technical Education Budget Request
must be completed for each project. A Budget Narrative must be completed for each
project except funds to be pooled for Advanced Learning Partnerships.

Administration funds are limited to 5% of the total Perkins IV allocation. Administration funds
are limited to direct costs associated with the administration of the Perkins funds. Indirect
costs are not allowable. A Budget Narrative must be included for administration projects.

Equipment is defined in Section 80.3 of EDGAR as ATangible, nonexpendable personal
property having a useful life of more than one year and an acquisition cost of $5,000 or more
per unit.@ Software is not considered equipment. All equipment purchases must have prior
approval from the State Division of Professional-Technical Education. Approval of the annual
application constitutes prior approval of equipment listed in the budget narrative.

Pooled Funds – All LEAS must pool a minimum of 5% of their Perkins allocation to the local
Advanced Learning Partnership. If the local Advanced Learning Partnership has mutually
agreed to pool a percentage higher than 5% then the LEA must indicate the percentage on the
Form CS5/10F, State Division of Professional-Technical Education Program Budget Request.

Expenditures made with federal funds must meet the following criteria:

#      Federal funds must be used to supplement not supplant state and local resources.

#      Costs must be necessary and reasonable for the proper and efficient administration of
       the program.

       EXAMPLE: If a Perkins IV funded project proposed to serve 100 students it would be
       reasonable and necessary to purchase materials and supplies for 100 students. It would
       not be necessary and reasonable to purchase materials and supplies for 200 students.

#      Costs must be allocable to the project.

       If students other than professional-technical education students are provided services
       the costs must be prorated based on the number of professional-technical students and
       other students.

       EXAMPLE: If the total cost for CIS for a school district is $2,000. The total school
       district headcount is 4,000 students of which 2,000 (50%) are participating in approved
       professional-technical education programs. 50% of the total cost for CIS could be paid
       with federal Perkins IV funds.




                                            8
#   Costs must not be a general expense of the recipient.

    EXAMPLE: If a class or activity is required to meet the graduation requirements (state or
    local) then it is a general expense of the recipient and would have to be supported with
    non-Perkins IV funds.

#   Perkins IV funds may not be used to:

    ●      pay for substitute salaries/benefits

    ●      pay for academic programs

    ●      pay for individual student costs such as meals, transportation, hotel/motel,
           registration fees for conferences/events, etc.

    ●      pay for instructional costs associated with students who are not enrolled in
           professional-technical education programs

    ●      provide career guidance and academic counseling to students who are not
           enrolled in professional-technical education programs

    ●      pay for academic remediation

                                     Act of 2006 (Perkins IV)
                                           P. L. 109-270



Annual Applications must be submitted each year to apply for funds under Title I of Perkins IV.
An Annual Application must be submitted for each allowable activity you plan to fund during
FY2008. The only form necessary for projects to pool funds for Advanced Learning
Partnerships (ALP) is the Form CS5/10F, State Division of Professional-Technical Education
Program Budget Request.

Background

Perkins IV funds are intended to improve professional-technical education programs
through (1) student attainment of challenging academic and technical standards; (2) integration
of rigorous and challenging academic and career and technical instruction; (3) linkages between
secondary and postsecondary education; and (4) providing individuals with opportunities for
lifelong learning. Although rigorous and challenging academic standards are referenced
throughout Perkins IV, funds may not be used for academic programs.

Historically, federal professional-technical education funds have been targeted to promote
preparation in the skills that are needed by business and industry. The 2006 Amendments
(Perkins IV) build on this purpose by promoting the development of challenging academic and
technical standards including preparation for high skill, high wage, or high demand occupations
in current or emerging occupations.

Perkins I and II included special provisions for special population students. Perkins III replaced
the emphasis on special populations with increased accountability at the state and local levels.
Perkins IV builds on the increased accountability under Perkins III by requiring local education
agencies (LEAs to set specific performance targets on each performance measure and be
responsible for meeting those targets. Additionally, Perkins IV imposes specific sanction
requirements for LEAs that do not meet their performance targets.

Accountability

The new accountability and sanction requirements will require each institution to think more
strategically about the use of Perkins IV funds and to focus activities on efforts that help meet
performance targets. At the postsecondary level, academic attainment will no longer be
reported as a separate measure, but technical skill proficiency will include student attainment on
technical assessments that are aligned with industry-recognized standards when possible.
Additionally, student placement in high-wage, high-skill or high-demand occupations or
professions must be measured at the postsecondary level.




                                                1
Professional Development

Under Perkins IV, professional development must be high quality, sustained, intensive, focused
on instruction, and increase the academic knowledge and understanding of industry standards,
as appropriate for professional-technical education teachers, faculty, administrators, and career
guidance and academic counselors who are involved in integrated career and technical
education programs. Perkins funds can no longer be used to fund one-day or short-term
workshops or conferences that are not part of a high quality, sustained and intensive
professional development program.

Professional development activities should: (a) promote the integration of coherent and rigorous
academic content with professional-technical education curricula; (b) increase the percentage of
teachers that meet teacher certification or licensing requirements; (c) encourage applied
learning that contributes to the academic and professional-technical education knowledge of the
student; (d) provide the knowledge and skills necessary to work with and improve instruction for
special populations; and assist in accessing and using data.

Academic Skills Development/Remediation

Perkins IV changed the federal definition of career and technical education sequence of courses
to: ―may include prerequisite courses (other than a remedial course) that meet the
requirements of this section.‖ Therefore, effective July 1, 2007 academic skills remediation is
defined as:
       Academic skills development is part of the coherent sequence of courses in an approved
       professional-technical education program if it is funded and administered by the technical college;
       is designed to develop strengths as well as to review previous curricular areas of students who
       have not been involved in postsecondary education or who have not been involved in
       postsecondary education for some time; improves (i.e., review) a student's skills and knowledge
       deemed necessary to enter a professional-technical education program in order to ensure a
       greater likelihood of success; and whose students are reported to the Division of Professional-
       Technical Education on Forms 1054S and 1054Y. Academic skills development includes the
       assessment of academic proficiency and developmental education.

       Academic skills development does not include remedial education which is defined as a
       duplication of a secondary program/course and support services in basic academic skills.
       Remediation usually involves recent high school graduates or those students who did not
       complete their secondary curriculum. Further, these students have little probability of success
       without first developing special skills and knowledge through remedial course work.

Career Guidance and Academic Counseling

Career guidance and counseling activities (including recruitment) are limited to students who
are enrolled in professional-technical education programs. Programs for special
populations which include preliminary intake and related services to individuals prior to
enrollment in approved professional-technical education programs are an allowable activity
under Perkins IV. However, these programs should result in (a) enrollment of members of
special populations in professional-technical education; (b) retention of special populations
students in professional-technical education programs; or (c) employment for members of
special populations who graduate from professional-technical education programs. Perkins IV
eliminated “Other barriers to educational achievement” from the definition of special
populations.

LOCAL SIX-YEAR PLAN MODIFICATIONS

As a result of this year=s activities, describe what modifications, if any, are necessary to the
Local Six-Year Plan. If the annual application modifies your Local Six-Year Plan, please
explain.

BUDGET

A Form CS5/10F, State Division of Professional-Technical Education Budget Request
must be completed for each project. A Budget Narrative must be completed for each
project except funds to be pooled for Advanced Learning Partnerships.

Administration funds are limited to 5% of the total Perkins IV allocation. Administration funds
are limited to direct costs associated with the administration of the Perkins funds. Indirect
costs are not allowable. A Budget Narrative must be included for administration projects.

Equipment is defined in Section 80.3 of EDGAR as ATangible, nonexpendable personal
property having a useful life of more than one year and an acquisition cost of $5,000 or more
per unit.@ Software is not considered equipment. All equipment purchases must have prior
approval from the State Division of Professional-Technical Education. Approval of the annual
application constitutes prior approval of equipment listed in the budget narrative.

Pooled Funds – All institutions and school districts must pool a minimum of 5% of their Perkins
allocation to the local Advanced Learning Partnership. If the local Advanced Learning
Partnership has mutually agreed to pool a percentage higher than 5% then the LEA must
indicate the percentage on the Form CS5/10F, State Division of Professional-Technical
Education Program Budget Request.

Expenditures made with federal funds must meet the following criteria:

#      Federal funds must be used to supplement not supplant state and local resources.

#      Costs must be necessary and reasonable for the proper and efficient administration of
       the program.

       EXAMPLE: If a Perkins IV funded project proposed to serve 100 students it would be
       reasonable and necessary to purchase materials and supplies for 100 students. It would
       not be necessary and reasonable to purchase materials and supplies for 200 students.

                                                 6
#   Costs must be allocable to the project.

    If students other than professional-technical education students are provided services,
    the costs must be prorated based on the number of professional-technical students and
    other students.

    EXAMPLE: If the total cost for CIS for a school district is $2,000. The total school
    district headcount is 4,000 students of which 2,000 (50%) are participating in approved
    professional-technical education programs. 50% of the total cost for CIS could be paid
    with federal Perkins IV funds.

#   Costs must not be a general expense of the recipient.

    EXAMPLE: If a class or activity is required to meet the graduation requirements (state or
    local) then it is a general expense of the recipient and would have to be supported with
    non-Perkins IV funds.

#   Perkins IV funds may not be used to:

       pay for substitute salaries/benefits

       pay for academic programs

       pay for individual student costs such as meals, transportation, hotel/motel,
        registration fees for conferences/events, etc.

       pay for instructional costs associated with students who are not enrolled in
        professional-technical education programs

       provide career guidance and academic counseling to students who are not enrolled
        in professional-technical education programs

    ●   provide academic remediation

                                            Definitions

Academic skills development is part of the coherent sequence of courses in an approved
professional-technical education program if it is funded and administered by the technical
college; is designed to develop strengths as well as to review previous curricular areas of
students who have not been involved in postsecondary education; improves (i.e., review) a
student's skills and knowledge deemed necessary to enter a professional-technical education
program in order to ensure a greater likelihood of success; and whose students are reported to
the Division of Professional-Technical Education on Forms 1054S and 1054Y. Academic skills
development includes the assessment of academic proficiency and developmental education.

Academic skills development does not include remedial education which is defined as a
duplication of a secondary program/course and support services in basic academic skills.
Remediation usually involves recent high school graduates or those students who did not
complete their secondary curriculum. Further, these students have little probability of success
without first developing special skills and knowledge through remedial course work.

Administration means activities necessary for the proper and efficient performance of the
recipient’s duties under the Act, including supervision of such activities. The term does not
include curriculum development activities, personnel development or research activities.

All Aspects of an Industry means strong experience in, and comprehensive understanding of,
the industry that the individual is preparing to enter, including information as described in §118.

Articulation Agreement means a written commitment –

(A)    that is agreed upon at the State level or approved annually by the lead administrators of
       (i)      a secondary institution and a postsecondary educational institution; or
       (ii)     a sub-baccalaureate degree granting postsecondary institution and a
                baccalaureate degree granting postsecondary educational institution; and

(B)    to a program that is –
       (i)     designed to provide students with a nonduplicative sequence of progressive
               achievement leading to technical skill proficiency, a credential, a certificate, or a
               degree; and
       (ii)    linked through credit transfer agreements between the 2 institutions described in
               clause (i) or (ii) of subparagraph (A) (as the case may be)

Career and Technical Education means organized educational activities that –

(A)    offer a sequence of courses that –

       (i)     provides individuals with coherent and rigorous content aligned with challenging
               academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to
               prepare for further education and careers in emerging professions;
       (ii)    provides technical skill proficiency, an industry recognized credential, a
               certificate, or an associate degree; and
       (iii)   may include prerequisite courses (other than a remedial course) that meet the
               requirements of this subparagraph; and




                                                13
(B)       include competency-based applied learning that contributes to the academic knowledge,
          higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes, general employability
          skills, technical skills, and occupation-specific skills, and knowledge of all aspects of an
          industry, including entrepreneurship, of an individual.

Career Guidance and Academic Counseling –

(1)       provides access for students (and parents, as appropriate) to information regarding
          career awareness and planning with respect to an individuals occupational and
          academic future; and

(2)       provides information with respect to career options, financial aid, and postsecondary
          options, including baccalaureate degree programs

Displaced Homemaker as an individual who –

(A)(i)    has worked primarily without remuneration to care for a home and family, and for that
          reason has diminished marketable skills;

   (ii)   has been dependent of the income of another family member but is no longer supported
          by that income; or

  (iii)   is a parent whose youngest dependent child will become ineligible to receive assistance
          under part A of title IV of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) not later than 2
          years after the date on which the parent applies for assistance under such title; and

(B)       is unemployed or underemployed and is experiencing difficulty in obtaining or upgrading
          employment

The definition of displaced homemaker in Idaho Code is broader than the one above. Although
the state can be more stringent than the law, it cannot be less stringent. Therefore, the
definition of displaced homemaker in Perkins IV applies to federal funds.

Special Populations are:

(A)       Individuals with disabilities

(B)       Individuals from economically disadvantaged families, including foster children

(C)       Individuals preparing for non-traditional fields

(D)       Single parents, including single pregnant women

(E)       Displaced homemakers

(F)       Individuals with limited English proficiency

The law deleted ―individuals with other barriers to educational achievement‖ from the definition
of special populations.

BUDGET

A Form CS5/10F, State Division of Professional-Technical Education Budget Request,
and a budget narrative must be completed and submitted to the Division of Professional-
Technical Education. The Project Design must substantiate the allocation of resources
in the budget and budget narrative.

Administration costs are not allowable with these funds. Administration is defined as
―activities necessary for the proper and efficient performance of the recipient’s duties under the
Act, including supervision of such activities. The term does not include curriculum development
activities, personnel development or research activities.‖

Salaries & Benefits - the budget narrative must include the title and percentage of the full-time
positions (FTP) to be funded with Perkins IV funds. (You are cautioned to recognize that this is
a soft funding source that may not be available in future years.)

Travel - travel costs relating to outreach services and other allowable project activities are
reimbursable. A detailed explanation of these expenses should be included in the budget
narrative.

Other Expenses - all expenses not included in the other categories should be listed here.

Materials and Supplies - materials and supplies must be directly related to the project being
funded and described in the budget narrative.

Equipment - instructional equipment is NOT an allowable expenditure under this project.

Expenditures made with federal funds must meet the following criteria:

#      Federal funds must be used to supplement not supplant state and local resources.

#      Costs must be necessary and reasonable for the proper and efficient administration of the program.

         EXAMPLE: If a Perkins IV funded project proposed to serve 100 students it would be reasonable
         and necessary to purchase materials and supplies for 100 students. It would not be necessary and
         reasonable to purchase materials and supplies for 200 students.

#      Costs must be allocable to the project. If students other than professional-technical education
       students are provided services the costs must be prorated based on the number of professional-
       technical students and other students.

         EXAMPLE: If the total cost for CIS for a school district is $2,000. The total school district
         headcount is 4,000 students of which 2,000 (50%) are participating in approved professional-
         technical education programs. 50% of the total cost for CIS could be paid with federal Perkins IV
         funds.

#      Costs must not be a general expense of the recipient.

         EXAMPLE: If a class or activity is required to meet the graduation requirements (state or local)
then     it is a general expense of the recipient and would have to be supported with non-Perkins IV funds.

BUDGET

A Form CS5/10F, State Division of Professional-Technical Education Budget Request
must be completed for each project.

Equipment is defined in Section 80.3 of EDGAR as ATangible, nonexpendable personal
property having a useful life of more than one year and an acquisition cost of $5,000 or more
per unit.@ Software is not considered equipment. All equipment purchases must have prior
approval from the State Division of Professional-Technical Education. Approval of the annual
application constitutes prior approval of equipment listed in the budget narrative.

Expenditures made with federal funds must meet the following criteria:

#      Federal funds must be used to supplement not supplant state and local resources.

#      Costs must be necessary and reasonable for the proper and efficient administration of
       the program.

       EXAMPLE: If a Perkins IV funded project proposed to serve 100 students it would be
       reasonable and necessary to purchase materials and supplies for 100 students. It would
       not be necessary and reasonable to purchase materials and supplies for 200 students.

#      Costs must be allocable to the project.

       If students other than professional-technical education students are provided services
       the costs must be prorated based on the number of professional-technical students and
       other students.

       EXAMPLE: If the total cost for CIS for a school district is $2,000. The total school
       district headcount is 4,000 students of which 2,000 (50%) are participating in approved

            Advanced Learning Partnerships Annual Application
                      Title I of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical
                                      Education Act of 2006
                                           P. L. 109-270


Overview

Idaho has elected to merge Title I and Title II of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical
Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV) to more fully integrate tech prep into professional-technical
education programs. Six regional Advanced Learning Partnerships will be formed to further
efforts of the six Tech Prep consortia funded under Title II of the previous Perkins legislation.
The Division of Professional-Technical Education has reserved funds in accordance with
Section 112(a)(1) of Perkins IV to support the Advanced Learning Partnerships.

Purpose

The role of the Advanced Learning Partnerships is to promote and support linkages between
secondary and postsecondary professional-technical education programs; improve academic
integration; facilitate the transition to baccalaureate degree programs; and to develop local and
statewide articulation agreements.

Membership

The Advanced Learning Partnerships will be comprised of representatives from the Technical
College, school districts and business and industry in each region.

Governance Structure

The Technical College will serve as the Regional Director for the partnership and is responsible
for the day-to-day administration and management of the Perkins funds, including hiring such
staff as necessary to carry out the activities of the Partnership. The Advanced Learning
Partnership will appoint an advisory committee comprised of representatives from school
districts and business and industry in each region. The advisory committee will be responsible
for the planning and evaluation of the Advanced Learning Partnership activities.

Funding Structure

The Technical College has been designated as the eligible recipient to submit Annual
Applications for Perkins IV reserve funds. Advanced Learning Partnership Members will be
required to submit Annual Applications to the Division of Professional-Technical Education to
pool a minimum of 5% of their Perkins IV Title I funds. Advanced Learning Partnerships may
establish a higher percentage for pooled funds. Advanced Learning Partnerships must submit
an annual application for reserve funds under Title I, Perkins IV, Section 112 (c) and Section
135.

                                            4
Administration funds are limited to 5% of the total Perkins IV allocation. Administration funds
are limited to direct costs associated with the administration of the Perkins funds. Indirect
costs are not allowable. A Budget Narrative must be included for administration projects.

Equipment is defined in Section 80.3 of EDGAR as a tangible, nonexpendable personal
property having a useful life of more than one year and an acquisition cost of $5,000 or more
per unit. Software is not considered equipment. All equipment purchases must have prior
approval from the State Division of Professional-Technical Education. Approval of the annual
application constitutes prior approval of equipment listed in the budget narrative.

Expenditures made with federal funds must meet the following criteria:

#      Federal funds must be used to supplement not supplant state and local resources.

#      Costs must be necessary and reasonable for the proper and efficient administration of
       the program.

       EXAMPLE: If a Perkins IV funded project proposed to serve 100 students it would be
       reasonable and necessary to purchase materials and supplies for 100 students. It would
       not be necessary and reasonable to purchase materials and supplies for 200 students.

#      Costs must be allocable to the project.

       If students other than professional-technical education students are provided services
       the costs must be prorated based on the number of professional-technical students and
       other students.

       EXAMPLE: If the total cost for CIS for a school district is $2,000. The total school
       district headcount is 4,000 students of which 2,000 (50%) are participating in approved
       professional-technical education programs. 50% of the total cost for CIS could be paid
       with federal Perkins IV funds.

#      Costs must not be a general expense of the recipient.

       EXAMPLE: If a class or activity is required to meet the graduation requirements (state or
       local) then it is a general expense of the recipient and would have to be supported with
       non-Perkins IV funds.

#      Perkins IV funds may not be used to:

       $      pay for substitute salaries/benefits
       ●      pay for academic programs
       $      pay for individual student costs such as meals, transportation, hotel/motel,
              registration fees for conferences/events, etc.
       $      pay for costs associated with students who are not enrolled in professional-
              technical education programs
       $      provide career guidance and academic counseling to students who are not
              enrolled in professional-technical education programs
