Frequently Asked Questions about Snapshot Perkins Data


1. What does the Perkins snapshot dashboard show me? This dashboard provides the tools to help districts prepare for the Snapshot with respect to Perkins submission. Your district must be a Perkins participant for the selected school years for data to be displayed. The CTE Student Dynamic Crosstabs provide counts of all students who are either CTE Concentrators, CTE Participants or CTE Graduates. If a student does not fit into one of these categories, he/she is not counted as part of this chart.

2. What if a student changes to a non-Perkins school/district? For mobile students, all CTE participant, concentrator, and graduate data will be displayed under the most recent district participating in Perkins. If the most recent enrollment for a student is in a district not participating in Perkins funding, then the student will not be identified as any of the following: CTE participant, CTE concentrator, CTE graduate.
