While this funded list of certifications and credentials are covered under SB155, these are not the only industry-recognized opportunities supported by KSDE and KBOR.
The occupations and certifications identified as those in highest need of additional skilled workers (and that are eligible for the $1,000 high school incentive) by the Kansas secretary of labor, and in consultation with the KBOR and KSDE, can be found at www.
This had to be a cross-agency collaboration involving KSDE, KBOR, workforce centers, the Kansas Departments of Labor and Commerce, and a number of others.
The undertaking will also help the KSDE to achieve one of the requirements of the Carl D.
The KSDE is setting an excellent example of how high schools can satisfy assessment requirements while helping their students become career-ready with valuable certifications that are recognized worldwide," said Ray Kelly, Chief Executive Officer, Certiport.
