The Portland Area Career and Technical Education Consortium (PACTEC) is a formal agreement between eight member districts in support of Career & Technical Education and state grant funding beyond the resources of any one district. The benefits to our consortium members include:

  • Implementation of Perkins-directed program elements
  • Oversight of Perkins funds to enrich the established Programs of Study and give purchasing power to smaller school districts
  • Coordinated professional development opportunities for continued teacher training
    Teacher licensure support

As an Alliance, all members work together to build and sustain high-quality Programs of Study, a required component of the Carl Perkins V funding regulations.

Working with Portland Community College, as the post-secondary partner, the Alliance provides high-quality educational opportunities in Career Technical Education. Each member of the PACTEC Alliance is committed to the success of the high school students in their classrooms and acknowledges the importance of CTE as they educate and train the students to be the emerging workforce in the 21st Century.
