Career & Technical Education: Learning That Works for New Jersey

Perkins V

Collaboration, Innovation and Equity

On July 31, 2018, the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) was signed into law. It went into effect on July 1, 2019. This law reauthorized the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Educational Act of 2006 (Perkins IV).

Perkins V is a federal education program that invests in secondary and postsecondary career and technical education (CTE) programs in all 50 states and the territories. It is dedicated to increasing learner access to high-quality CTE programs of study with a focus on program improvement; alignment across K-12, postsecondary and workforce; and economic development. Perkins V is critical to ensuring programs meet the ever-changing needs of learners and employers.

Perkins V Stakeholder Surveys

We would like parent, family and student input as we innovate CTE to better serve all students in New Jersey. Please complete one of the surveys listed below to provide us with valuable information and feedback as we develop our Perkins V State Plan. All survey responses are anonymous.
