Brownback presents checks to Career & Technical Education programs

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback presented checks this afternoon to some of the top districts for their efforts in helping their students succeed in the new Career and Technical Education (CTE) program that Brownback authored and signed into law in 2012.

The CTE initiative is part of the Governor’s Road Map goal to increase the number of high school graduates who are college and career ready. The program covers the students’ tuition cost for technical courses and rewards school districts with a $1,000 incentive payment for each of their students who earn an industry-recognized technical certificate in a key occupation.

The occupations are identified as those in highest need of additional skilled workers by the Kansas Secretary of Labor, in consultation with the Board of Regents and the Board of Education.
