Career Technical Education initiative (Senate Bill 155)

In 2012, Governor Brownback launched a bold and innovative plan to enhance career technical education in Kansas and better prepare high school students for college and careers. Senate Bill 155 was the enacting legislation, and beginning with the 2012-2013 school year, Kansas high school students could qualify for free college tuition in approved technical courses offered at Kansas technical and community colleges.  Additionally, the program provides school districts with a $1,000 incentive for each high school student who graduates from that district with an industry-recognized credential in a high-need occupation.  Not only does this put the student on the fast track to a technical career, it also saves the family money on college tuition.
