Programs must be taught by instructors endorsed in the respective curricular area. All high schools and K-12 districts with qualifying CTE programs are eligible to apply. Elementary districts are not eligible. For assistance, please contact the Career and Technical Education division at (406) 444-9019.

Do you intend to apply for Perkins funds in FY2016?

For the Perkins grant, this LEA will be participating as a/an

Priority Approval Request. Select Yes if your LEA will need access to its FY16 funds prior to October 1, 2015. The Office of Public Instruction cannot guarantee projects will be approved by October 1, 2015.
