Career Development Success Program


In May 2016, the Governor signed into law HB16-1289, the Career Success Pilot Program. The bill provides financial incentives for participating school districts and charter schools that encourage high school students (grades 9-12) to complete qualified industry credential programs, internships, residencies, construction pre-apprenticeship or construction apprenticeship programs, or qualified Advanced Placement courses.

Participating districts or charter schools could receive up to $1,000 for each student who successfully completes one of the qualified programs and will be distributed in tiered order. This pilot program is in effect through August 31, 2019.
