Senate Bill 155

Senate Bill 155, or the Governor’s CTE Bill, was passed into law on July 1, 2012. The main purpose of the bill is to stimulate growth in Career & Technical Education at both the secondary and post-secondary level in Kansas. The Kansas workforce will increasingly demand a more highly-technical and highly-skilled worker and Senate Bill 155 is aimed at meeting those future demands. There are several parts to Senate Bill 155. The four financial aspects of Senate Bill 155 are:

  • Tuition reimbursement for high school students enrolled in college-level CTE courses,
  • Incentivizing high school students graduating with an industry-recognized certifications that lead directly to high-demand occupations in Kansas through a Certification incentive program,
  • Transportation reimbursement to school districts transporting high school students off-campus to complete college-level CTE coursework
  • CTE Marketing campaign to promote the positive impact of CTE on education and the workforce
