Annual Reports

Partnerships for Innovation has an annual report which outlines all major initiatives, professional development opportunities, and sponsored meetings/conferences. The annual report activities are guided by the Perkins IV State Plan.

The Partnerships for Innovation (PFI) is a collaboration of Nebraska secondary and postsecondary partners focused on building a better statewide system of Career and Technical Education (CTE) to improve student learning and better meet economic development priorities.  PFI will do this by introducing innovation in delivery systems in CTE to include Career Academies, professional development and programs of study with coordinated curriculum between secondary and postsecondary education providers.

  • Assist with the development and facilitation of reVISION; a Program of Study development process in partnership with Nebraska community colleges and schools which integrate labor market information and Nebraska’s Economic Industry Clusters.
  • Create Career & Technical Education activities that are specific to each region in Nebraska.
