Source of Funds: Federal Perkins V Funds awarded by the NY State Education Department
Abstract: Provides student-centric support services across the student lifecycle continuum for a CTE student population of approximately 3779 Perkins-eligible students. A structured, well-defined plan of operations is in place to ensure CTE students are successfully enrolled in appropriate program and supported holistically to complete their postsecondary goals
satisfactorily, including the use of enrollment, academic, and career/ placement coaching with services that drill down to program-specific high need areas via the use of professional and peer tutors as well as technical support with assistive devices. The purpose of all activities, strategies, and interventions to be implemented will be to increase students’ persistence/retention, graduation/completion, and transfer/employment rates as well as build their academic, emotional, and social confidence and expertise. These increases will be evaluated by tracking rates of persistence, graduation/attainment of recognized credentials, and placement (transfer and employment), and completing semester-to-semester and/or year-to-year comparisons of tracked data.
