The Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Higher Education are sponsoring a September 18 workshop on the reauthorized Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act (Perkins V), with a focus on systems alignment and program improvement. The workshop, related to the non-traditional/equity section of the act, focuses on the category of students pursuing occupations that traditionally have been filled by one gender. The U.S. Department of Labor defines a non-traditional occupation as an occupation for which individuals from one gender comprise less than 25 percent of the individuals employed in the occupation.

The workshop is presented by the National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity. Through this professional development session, participants will cover the new Perkins V emphasis on equity, best practices and the new toolkit for leadership to integrate student outreach for recruiting more non-traditional representation and implementation of a quality process transition plan, including a discussion on the best component to measure and close performance gaps that affect the Ohio School Report Cards.
