FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOARD PRESIDENT APPLAUDS POSTSECONDARY CAREER TECHNICAL EDUCATION LEGISLATION
Implementation Already Underway
"The Kansas Board of Regents is excited to help more Kansas high school students explore postsecondary career technical education (CTE) opportunities because of the Legislation signed. With increasing demand for a highly skilled and technical workforce, CTE provides an outstanding education and career path. Enabling high school students to graduate with an industry recognized credential, and college credits, also ensures students are exposed to the value of higher education and provided opportunities to increase earnings immediately to benefit their families and future education goals. The Board and its staff have already begun working with the Kansas State Department of Education to implement this important initiative and applaud the Governor and Legislature for developing and supporting this innovative approach to improve the lives of Kansans and the Kansas economy."
Additional information about the bill and the ceremonial signing may be found on Governor Brownback's website.
