Tool to assist with comprehensive Perkins V needs assessment.

One of the most significant changes in Perkins V (the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act) is the new requirement for local eligible recipients to conduct a comprehensive local needs assessment and update it at least every two years. 

The new needs assessment is designed as the foundation of Perkins V implementation at the local level—it drives local application development and future spending decisions.

This tool will provide an overview of how to get started on local needs assessment and help translate the language in the law into concrete, actionable steps for conducting a rigorous local needs assessment that meets Perkins V requirements.
