Intent to Participate in Perkins V Activities FY2020-2021

This notification is to request your action in completing the intent to participate process for Perkins V funding during the 2020-2021 program year. All school districts, even if participating in a consortium, career academy, or choosing not to participate, must complete the data collection. NOTE: This process has not changed since the reauthorization of Perkins. Only updates have been made to reflect the new provisions of the law.

This action is accomplished through the official submission of the intent and eligibility to participate in Perkins V through the NDE Portal located at under the “Data Collections” tab. This specific data collection is entitled “Perkins Career and Technical Education.”

The online system asks district administrators to:

  • Determine Intent to Participate in Perkins V funds with consortium identification if applicable;
  • Validate the existence of all Essential Career and Technical Education Components within the School District; and
  • Identify the Career and Technical Student Organizations offered within the School District

The deadline for completing the online submission is March 1, 2020.

Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this request and your support of Nebraska Career and Technical Education through the federal Perkins grant program.
