The Department of Education has announced a funding opportunity under the High School Career and Technical Education Teacher Pathway Initiative.

 

Purpose of Program:

The purpose of the High School Career and Technical Education (CTE) Teacher Pathway Initiative is to improve CTE programs assisted under the Carl D.Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (the Perkins Act) by increasing the supply of high school CTE teachers available to teach students in CTE programs that align to In-Demand Industry Sectors or Occupations 1 in States and communities where shortages of such teachers exist. 

The U.S. Department of Education is pleased to inform you of an important new grant opportunity being made available by the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education, the High School Career and Technical Education (CTE) Teacher Pathway Initiative.

From your valuable input, the Department of Education recognized that consistent shortages of high school CTE teachers make it difficult to respond to student and community interest in creating or expanding CTE programs focused on in-demand industry sectors and occupations. Announced on June 13, 2017, in the Federal Register, this grant opportunity will award up to $3.6 million for strategies and activities that seek to address these shortages. We anticipate awarding 5-7 grants under this initiative.

Applications are due July 28, 2017.

Please plan to attend the pre-application webinar scheduled for Thursday, June 22, 2017, at 2:00 pm ET. Questions may be directed to: CTEteachergrant@ed.gov.
