Beginning in 2018–2019, Education Code §§ 88827 established the K12 component of the Strong Workforce Program appropriating $150,000,000 in annual ongoing career technical education funding to strengthen the programs and programs of study for students from secondary to post-secondary education and career. K12 SWP intends to create, support, and/or expand high-quality career education programs at the K12 level that are aligned with the regional priorities of the community college workforce development efforts occurring through the Strong Workforce Program.
