School Districts Getting Paid For Successful Tech Students

The state is rewarding Kansas school districts for trying to get students certified in technical education specialties.

Gov. Brownback presented $703,000 in checks to 111 districts Tuesday.

The state awards districts with $1,000 for each student who completes a technical education program and earns certification through a state vocational or technical college.

The funds are part of a program the state launched in 2012 to increase the number of certified technicians to meet industry demands.
