MFG Day Feedback

  • There seems to be confusion regarding Center kids and if they have to participate. HACC students must participate. WBL requirements are not tracked for all students not just concentrators.
  • MFG Day is for Engineering and Welding students. All other programs run as normal on this day.
  • Do not send Engineering and Welding students to HACC on this day, they should be on the tour with their home districts
  • Plan the date for next year's Mfg. Day so Businesses have more time to plan and we increase participation
  • Continue transportation reimbursements from the home school to EDP

Perkins V: Transition Year

Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment (CLNA)

Districts: Camden, Hillsdale, Jonesville, NAJ, Waldron and HACC

  • Failure to submit your CLNA will result in the loss of your added cost funding and loss of CTE status.
  • 3 Levels: OA (any district that receives Added Cost Funding), CEPD (County), Region (Hillsdale, Jackson, Lenawee)
  • Timeline: OA (October 1, 2019), CEPD (November 1, 2019), Region (December 1, 2019)
  • The needs assessment should be driving your Perkins spending.
