Entry Description

Indianapolis - Governor Mike Pence today hailed the passage of the Indiana Works Councils Bill, SB 465, which passed the House 94-0 this evening.   

 

"The passage of this legislation with unanimous and bipartisan support demonstrates the commitment of the people of our state to make career and vocational education a priority in every high school in Indiana again," said the Governor. "I am grateful to the leadership of both chambers of the General Assembly, as well as Senator Dennis Kruse (R) who authored the bill in the Senate and Representative Bob Behning (R) who sponsored the bill in the House. Today, the Indiana General Assembly took an important step toward making certain that our schools work for all our students, whether they're college- or career-bound. On behalf of the people of Indiana, I am grateful."

 

The bill integrates local and state resources by creating regional Indiana Works Councils with membership including representation from employers and educators. The IWCs will evaluate career, technical, and vocational educational opportunities for high school students within each region, for the purpose of designing demand driven curriculum, internships and other educational opportunities and draft alternative curricula to align educational pathways to high-wage, high-demand jobs.
