Greetings,

 

As many of you know, the Legislature has adjourned.  We are in the process of working through legislation related to CTE funding. Bills are now waiting for the Governor’s signature.   The total CTE funding nearly doubled over the last biennium and some new programs have been created.  HB 3072 (https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2015R1/Measures/Overview/HB3072) spells out the specific funded programs related to CTE and STEM.  Of particular interest in that bill are Sections 1, 10, 11, 12, and 16.   A summary of specific funding related to each program can be found under STEM and CTE Related Programs in this link:

We will be updating you through this listserv on CTE and STEM opportunities.  Updates on the CTE Revitalization Grant can also be found on this page:

The CTE Revitalization Grant Advisory Committee will meet on August 3 to discuss goals for that grant.  Decisions made at that meeting will be posted shortly after on the CTE Revitalization Grant web page listed above.  We still anticipate a late August release of that RFP.
