What is Excel in CTE?

  • The "Excel in Career Technical Education" ("Excel in CTE") initiative was enacted to enhance career technical education in Kansas and better prepare high school students for college and careers. Through the bill, Kansas high school students qualify for state-funded college tuition in approved technical courses offered by Kansas technical and community colleges. Additionally, it provides school districts with an incentive for each high school student who graduates from that district with an industry-recognized credential in a high-need occupation.
