HB15-1275 - Career & Tech Ed In Concurrent Enrollment

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning Measures To Support Enrollment In Career And Technical Education Programs.

The bill clarifies that a local education provider may include course work related to apprenticeship programs and internship programs in the programs that are available for concurrent enrollment. The bill directs the concurrent enrollment advisory board (advisory board) to collaborate with persons from the department of education, the department of labor and employment, the community college system, the local district junior colleges, area vocational schools, and the Colorado work force development council to create recommendations to assist local education providers in creating cooperative agreements to include apprenticeship programs and internship programs in the available concurrent enrollment programs. The annual report that the department of education prepares concerning concurrent enrollment must include information concerning enrollment in courses related to apprenticeship programs and internship programs.

The bill directs the Colorado commission on higher education to create a tuition assistance program for students who meet the income eligibility requirements for a Pell grant but do not qualify for the grant because the career and technical education certificate program in which they are enrolled does not meet the Pell grant's minimum credit hour requirements.
