Annually, Nebraska receives 8.3 million federal dollars for Nebraska high schools and two-year postsecondary institutions through the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act. As part of the required accountability associated with the use of these funds, specific performance measures are required for public reporting. The performance measures intend to serve primarily as a resource for guiding program improvement efforts, but also inform policy makers through a federal report to Congress.
The advanced inquiry options below, provide access to reports on performance and participation. The performance measures are prescribed by the federal legislation. The participation is a representation of the number of Nebraska public high school students engaged in career education and the areas of engagement.
