10 Texas Education Agency (TEA) “We do not yet know whether USDE will require states to continue to report the data, so we do not know whether to continue to collect it”. “OVAE has promised guidance soon, but we don’t have it yet. Districts should absolutely report their Tech Prep data on the PER (and anywhere else)”. Vangie Stice-Israel, State Director, Career and Technical Education, May 26, 2011 Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) “At this time, all regular grant activities should continue”. “As soon as we hear any official direction from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Adult Vocational Education and/or Texas Education Agency, we will contact you immediately. I spoke with OVAE this morning and they will send official correspondence to the states in the next couple of weeks”. Dr. Stacey Silverman, Senior Director, Academic Research and Grant Programs, April 21, Copyright 2010 State Direction
