  • CARL D. PERKINS CTEA GRANT OVERVIEW: "The view that education and career development are lifeling, and that CTE can begin as early as elementary school and span high school through postsecondary education and on-the-job training is infused throughout the plan. The notion that strong CTE improves academic learning, and, conversely, that infusing or reinforcing inherent academic content can strengthen CTE, girds the plan as well. Equally important is ensuring that the system is "demand-driven"; that is, continuously responsive to the ever-changing needs of a complex global workplace, as well as to the needs of increasingly diverse learners, and of a democratic society that requires all of its citizens to be critical thinkers and problem solvers. As one stakeholder commented, "nothing short of our democracy is at stake." (2008-2012 California State Plan for Career Technical Education, page vii).


  • CTE TRANSITIONS OVERVIEW: Focuses on five objectives: outreach/career exploration, articulation, concurrent enrollment, credit by exam, and work-based learning. Requires designated community colleges to fund activities related to CTE Transitions objectives with the goal of helping Career Technical Education students' transition from secondary to postsecondary education and on to the world of work. 


National Science Foundation (NSF) Grant

 BUDGET: 11-15 $199,998 

  • 11-12 amount: $66,666
  • 12-13 amount: $66,666
  • 13-14 amount: $66,666
  • 14-15 amount: $0
  • NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION GRANT OVERVIEW: IVC with directed guidance from industry leaders, will develop and implement new educational materials, coursework, laboratories, practicum and curricula applicable towards a new alternative energy technicain certificate program, eventually leading to an Associate's of Science Degree with transferable courses. It is the intention of IVC to involve renewable energy employers from the onset, resulting in a model that can be disseminated broadly, throughout the southwest offering a viable program not only to Imperial County residents, but to perspective regional students from San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, Arizona, and Mexicali, Baja California, to name a few.


SB70, Senate Bill 70

  • BUDGET: 

  • SB 70 OVERVIEW: "In 2005, the Governor's Initiative on Improving and Strengthening Career Technical Education (CTE) was successfully carried through Senate Bill (SB) 70 by Senator Scott. SB 70 allocated $20,000,000 from the Community College reversion account to be specifically used for the improving of CTE at both the community college and secondary level. The bill allowed for CDE to be an active and full partner in the development of the plan to carry out this important initiative. The CDE Career and Workforce Innovations (CWI) Unit provides the leadership in this work. For the past five years, CWI Unit staff have met and conferred on the plan for the funds to be dispersed to the CTE field. In 2006, SB 1130 was signed by the Governor to continue this important work with additional funding for the next five years through the 2013-14 fiscal years."

State Energy Resources Grant

  • BUDGET: $100,000


  • STATE ENERGY RESOURCES GRANT OVERVIEW: IVC will provide a streamlined Alternative Energy - Alternative Fuel Conversion Technology Certificate to meet the latest industry standards and enhance the students' employment opportunities. While several major alternative energy projects are being installed in Imperial Valley and more are being approved for installation in the newar future, IVC is being "responsive to the greater community" by creating this program. It will also provide an overview of alternative fuels for a renewable source of clean electric power to assist in providing qualified labor for local utility organizationa to fulfill the State's plan in achieving the CA Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) of producing 33% of electric power generation from renewable sources by 2020. Equipment for a new Diesel Technology program will be acquired.
