TITLE
RESOLUTION SUPPORTING THE CONTINUATION OF THE CARL D. PERKINS ACT APPROPRIATIONS

BODY
WHEREAS, the School Board of Miami-Dade County, Florida, Miami-Dade Community College and the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce have set a high priority on preparing both K-12 and adult students for high-skill/high-wage employment opportunities in fields such as health occupations, information technology, and other vocation/technical areas of vital interest to the community and to the local economy; and
WHEREAS, the School Board of Miami-Dade County, Florida, is currently authorized to receive $4.3 million in secondary and $1.5 million in postsecondary funds and Miami-Dade County Community College is authorized to receive $3.7 million in postsecondary funds from the Carl D. Perkins Act to provide for the training of students for employment in such high-skill/high-wage occupations. Further, the Board has decreed that the opportunity for entrance into such training programs will be extended to all segments of our society; and
WHEREAS, the continuation of such federal assistance depends upon reauthorization of the Carl D. Perkins Act by the 108th U.S. Congress and its signing by the President, and that failure to reauthorize this legislation would critically impact the School Board's ability to sustain and initiate technology-dependent secondary and postsecondary programs; and
WHEREAS, such federal assistance is necessary to purchase and replace equipment and other items essential to the workforce readiness of students; provide staff development and curriculum support related to new technological developments and the changing needs of business and industry; and provide leadership and mentoring experiences, competitions, and opportunities for personal and professional development,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. This Board supports the continuation of appropriations for the Carl D. Perkins Applied Technology Act. The current delivery systems have met, are meeting, and will continue to meet the educational and economic development needs of our community; therefore, the structure of the Carl D. Perkins Act delivery system must be preserved.
Section 2. The Clerk of the Board is directed to send certified copies of this Resolution to the members of the Miami-Dade County Federal Legislative Delegation.
