Nationally, in all but 14 states, the Perkins grant and Career and Technical Education (CTE) planning is administered by a State Educational Agency. In Hawaii, that agency is the State Board for CTE and its administrative arm is the Office of the State Director for Career and Technical Education (OSDCTE), often referred to as either the CTE Center or CTE State Office. Both the State Board for CTE and its OSDCTE are placed for the purposes of state Perkins administration under the Board of Regents of the University of Hawaii System. OSDCTE assists the State Board in carrying out the purpose and provisions of the Perkins’ legislation. Additionally, OSDCTE develops and revises the State Plan for CTE, recommends establishment of policies for CTE, and assists the Department of Education and the University of Hawai’i Community College System in planning, coordinating, and evaluating CTE programs and activities.
