About the consortium
The Greenbush Carl Perkins Consortium provides a broad range of Career and Technical Education (CTE) initiatives to member districts. This includes incorporating CTE utilizing on-site training,  interactive distance learning and on-line instruction; providing high-tech equipment and requisite training; supporting teacher stipends and scholarships for training; providing support and technology to assist member technical education students in improving their reading and math skills; providing targeted staff development; and providing on-site technical assistance to member districts.
Kansas school districts that operate approved Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs and pathways are eligible for federal Carl D. Perkins funds which target the improvement of their approved CTE programs/pathways. Districts who are awarded less than $15,000 annually in Perkins funds are required to participate in the grant through a Consortium. We consolidate participating district’s federal Perkins funds and re-distributes the funds to the member districts based on an Annual Plan developed by the Consortium’s Advisory Committee. Funds are distributed to school districts based on a set amount per district for each Perkins activity.

Kansas Statewide CTE Mentoring Network

Greenbush – The Southeast Kansas Education Service Center received a federal grant award under the Career & Technical Education (CTE) Teacher Pathway Initiative to implement a Kansas Statewide CTE Mentoring Network.  Objectives of the project include:

  • Partner with the Kansas Center for Career & Technical Education to enhance and expand their mentoring program, and align their program to state & national standards for best practices in mentoring.
  • Develop an online Community of Practice to institutionalize mentoring best practices, including developing Explorations modules in conjunction with the New Teacher Center.
  • Improve partnerships with the CTE teacher education programs (PSU, KSU, FHSU).  Each IHE partner will work collaboratively within their region to support both mentors and mentees.
  • Increase the number of trained CTE mentors within Kansas for a total of 75, thus impacting an estimated 25+ new teachers per year.
  • Institute a statewide public marketing campaign to increase awareness of CTE mentoring opportunities.
