[s14] Sen. Kruse: Vocational Education Bill Moves to Governor’s Desk

Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (March 25, 2013) — State Sen. Dennis Kruse’s (R-Auburn) legislation to enhance vocational education for high school students passed the House of Representatives today by a unanimous vote. House Education Committee Chairman Robert Behning (R-Indianapolis) is the bill’s sponsor.

Senate Bill 465 allows the governor to create Indiana Works Councils for assigned geographic regions throughout the state. These councils would oversee the career, technical and vocational education opportunities for high school students in their areas.

“A well-structured vocational education system is essential to preparing our students for their lives after high school,” Kruse said. “To create that system, we must continually assess how well our schools are meeting the needs of students who choose to go directly into the job market after graduation. Works Councils will do just that.”

If councilmembers believe a region’s vocational education programs are inadequate, the bill allows Works Councils to develop an alternative curriculum that is subject to the approval of the State Board of Education.

SB 465 now moves to the governor’s desk for approval. The bill will be implemented upon its passage.
