LNA/CLNA Support

Timeline/Overview:

Program Data Review opens 11/12 - Due by January 15, 2022

  • Includes a review of professional development offered to teachers in your district

  • Includes a review of Programs/CIPs - advisory boards, rigorous content, Learning Standards, certifications, dual credit

  • Includes a review of the courses taught at your school - state course codes, credits

Local Needs Assessment - Opens when Program Data Review is Completed - Due March 31, 2022* (revised date due to ISBE delay in opening the system

  • Includes data review - student assessment, special populations, workforce data

Comprehensive Needs Assessment - Completed by EIEFES - Due April 30, 2022

  • EIEFES compiles all district data with regional information into the CLNA

  • Collaborates with WIOA and LLC for a joint report

Important Tips:

  • Keep in mind this should be a tool to identify where the gaps are in our programs - you do not need to put everything into place right now! The goal is to work on having everything going within 3 years.

  • You can use your own sources of data - School report cards are great for assessment data! Title 1 grants and reports may have information on how your district is supporting access and equity for all learners. (ISBE has some technical issues where the data is not always correct in the new CTE Systems in IWAS)

  • Don't get hung up on the details! Just a couple of sentences is sufficient - remember your school's info is being combined with 23 other districts!

Detailed Resources for LNA:

Local Needs Assessment- This step reviews student data, PDR data, economic data, and stakeholder input which allows for your district's reflection and plans for improvement in CTE Programs.

    • Your LNA may include feedback from teachers, administrators, special ed teachers, parents, students, businesses, etc. Various Data pieces can be found at the links below. Keep in mind that this applies to your district and you do not need to have input from all stakeholders suggested. If there are any gaps, our office will pick them up in our CLNA Report.

    • Student Performance Data can be collected from other reports your district may already have - the School Report Card, your Title 1 Grant, the FCAE (Ag Education Grant), etc or the resouces below.

DATA RESOURCES:

LWIA 23 Region 7 - Labor Market Information Reports from FY2020 are found HERE. All schools are in Region 7 except for Douglas County schools who are in Region 2. New labor market data will be posted on IL WorkNet, https://www.illinoisworknet.com/WIOA/RegPlanning

ISBE Power BI: new data tool that provides student data regionally, by district, and by high school. Our EFE performance data is tied to these reports and we must write our grants to support the improvement of any data elements not meeting goals. You can look at the data tool HERE.

Lake Land College's Institutional Research site has a variety of data elements regarding postsecondary education and the workforce. Dr. Bullock's Data for Decision Maker's report found here and LLC's new 21-22 Trend Analysis Report


Feel free to use our survey documents for regional feedback collection or use your own surveys or meetings for data needed to complete the LNA:

Student Survey: The CTE Student Survey was sent to the high schools in January - The data collected from your school's survey is posted HERE. The file contains raw data for your district. You may want to see the survey that was sent to students along with the response data. A copy of the survey is in the first file listed in the link or HERE.

Business Partner Survey Example: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LSN7LH5 *(Share with local businesses, Co-op partners, etc) Our office will send out a business partner survey that can be used at your school.

Parent Survey Example: https://forms.gle/PEYjEip7MKAGW6wC9

*Schools can email Laura to get a copy of the results of the regional surveys if used*


Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment: Completed by EIEFES. Our office will see all local data submitted by districts in IWAS once all schools have completed their portion. Our office will complete the CLNA as the first step to writing our state and federal grants.

All information provided by ISBE to assist with this process can be found on their website: https://www.isbe.net/Pages/Career-Technical-Education.aspx# Click on PDR Documents under the News and Updates.


This is still a new process for us too. Please be patient as we learn what is needed by ISBE to perfect our grants through this process. Feel free to contact our office with any questions or support!

Additional Information about the PDR and LNA

  • Programs of Study Approval: Programs of Study and CIP/Course Approvals will be updated on an annual basis and verified in IWAS under the Programs of Study System. Course changes can be made at any time during the school year as approved through our EFE Office. Data accuracy can help with our data and future grant funding.

  • Program Data Review: This allows our office and ISBE to review the strengths and weaknesses in Programs of Study at each of our high schools and compare this with how our region and schools are meeting Perkins V data goals set by ISBE. The detailed data is reviewed by EIEFES in January and will be shared with you. This data can be used to support the use of grant funds in various ways.

  • The last step is the Districts' Local Needs Assessment. This step reviews student data, PDR data, economic data, and stakeholder input which allows for your district's reflection and plans for improvement in CTE Programs.

    • Labor Market Information can be found on the ISBE website below by Economic Development Region (EDR). All schools are in Region 7 except for Douglas County schools who are in Region 2. LWIA 23 has shared a copy of their 2020 report for Region 7 - it is linked under resources. New labor market data will be posted on IL WorkNet, https://www.illinoisworknet.com/WIOA/RegPlanning. You can also check out Lake Land College's Institutional Research site for some data elements and Dr. Bullock's Data for Decision Maker's report found here and LLC's new Trend Analysis Report. Keep in mind that this applies to your district and you do not need to have input from all stakeholders suggested. If there are any gaps, our office will pick them up in our CLNA.

    • This information can be collected from other reports your district may already have - the School Report Card, your Title 1 Grant, the FCAE (Ag Education Grant), etc
