What is K12 Strong Workforce Program?

The California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO), in partnership with the California Department of Education (CDE), is pleased to announce the K12 Strong Workforce Program (K12 SWP). Beginning in 2018-2019, Education Code §§ 88827 establishes the kindergarten through 12th grade component of the Strong Workforce Program appropriating $150,000,000 in annual ongoing career education funding to strengthen the pathways for students from secondary to post-secondary education.
K12 SWP intends to create, support, and/or expand high-quality career education programs at the K12 level that are aligned with the workforce development efforts occurring through the community college Strong Workforce Program and regional priorities.
