Information and resources to help Regional Occupational Centers and Programs (ROC/P) maintain compliance with federal and state law.

ROC/Ps are required to report placement and enrollment information to the California Department of Education (CDE) as a condition of Carl D. Perkins funding.

ROC/P Course Review Process

CDE reviews the placement and enrollment information on ROC/P courses annually. Placement information is reported to CDE on the CDE 101 E1 and CDE 101 E2 Perkins forms. These forms document your efforts to follow up on 12th grade completers and adult completers on their placement status in the calendar year in which they completed the course. The CDE 101 E1 forms are to be submitted annually to CDE on October 15. The CDE 101 E2 forms are to be submitted annually to CDE on May 15.

The second part of the course review process captures data relative to characteristics of individual courses such as industry advisory committees, labor market information, career technical education (CTE) standards and certifications.

The Education Code requirement (52302.3) of a local governing body review every two years is still in effect for every ROC/P.

California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids

ROC/Ps are eligible to apply annually for California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) funding to provide education and training to:

  • Prepare CalWORKs eligible recipients for entry-level employment
  • Assist employed recipients receiving subsidies or supportive services to advance toward higher employment and self-sufficiency
  • Divert CalWORKs eligible recipients into short-term education and training programs leading to employment.

As a condition of this funding, and required by the Budget Act, Chapter 157, Item 6110-156-001, Provision 4(g), Statutes of 2008, ROCP are required to submit the CalWORKs Data Collection Report. ROC/Ps must collect and report data for all CalWORKs students in all ROC/P courses, regardless of the number of instructional hours they attend.
