Two Topeka area school districts received money from the state to help students succeed in a new program recently signed into law.

Governor Sam Brownback presented checks Tuesday to the Auburn-Washburn and Shawnee Heights school districts as part of the career and technical education program.

It covers student tuition costs for technical courses and rewards districts with thousand dollar incentive payments for each student who earns an industry recognized technical certificate in a key occupation.

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.
