What is K12 Strong Workforce Program?

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.
