Fiscal Year 2016 Vocational-Technical Education Enhancement Grant Webcast, November 18, 2014

The Office of College and Career Readiness will be hosting a webcast on Tuesday, November 18, 2014, at 1:00 pm, to provide guidance on the revised application process and administration of Vocational-Technical Education Enhancement Grants that will take effect beginning with the fiscal year 2016 (FY16) funding cycle.  Log-in capacity is limited to registered 500 users, so we ask that whenever possible, multiple persons wishing to participate from the same location do so from a common, shared computer.

Access to the event  and registration will be available through http://dese.mo.gov/communications/webinar/fiscal-year-2016-vocational-technical-education-enhancement-grants.

This event is being offered live so that, time permitting, questions from participants can be answered.  Regardless whether all questions can be answered during this two-hour event, the entire webcast will be archived for online viewing, along with a document that summarizes questions and answers.

In addition to the opportunity to submit questions through the live webcast, those submitted by email sent to [email protected] through November 28, 2014 will be included in the summary.

Chrissy Bashore ([email protected]) is now handling the 50/50 funds.  The FV2 forms are due March 31.  Remember that the FV2 must be signed by an administrator and you must attach only the paid invoice.  We have met a few times as CTE directors to discuss the possibility of streamlining the FV4 process amongst program areas.
