The Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) announced over $2 million in Perkins Reserve Grant awards today to nearly 40 school districts for the 2021-22 school year to support career and technical education (CTE) across the state.

School systems in the area presented with the awards include:

BLEDSOE COUNTY SCHOOLS – Secondary Award of $12,000 to strengthen career and technical education.

LENOIR CITY SCHOOLS – Regional Career Pathways Award of $200,000 for co-location for TCAT in Building Construction Technology.

MCMINN COUNTY SCHOOLS – Secondary Award of $45,461 for Mechatronics Program Enhancement.

ROANE COUNTY SCHOOLS – Regional Career Pathways Award of $199,036 for High Level Machining.

WHITE COUNTY SCHOOLS – Secondary Award of $49,330 for the Warrior Innovation FAB lab and Pick-A-Path program.

This year’s Perkins Reserve Grant recipients submitted applications for programs, initiatives, and strategies that help to ensure their students succeed in exploring, choosing, and following a career pathway to success, whether by providing equitable access, aligned career pathways, high-quality learning experiences, or a combination thereof.

Applications were reviewed by a team of TDOE staff from the Division of College, Career and Technical Education and partners from the Tennessee Board of Regents. All applications needed to address at least one of the priority areas of the state plan – ensuring equitable access, aligning career pathways, and/or ensuring high-quality learning experiences, and the Regional Career Pathways application must also include a regionally focused secondary and postsecondary or workforce partnership.
