K-12 Strong Workforce Program

In summer 2018, the California legislature introduced the K12 Strong Workforce Program (K12 SWP) as an ongoing statewide funding opportunity. It is designed to support K–12 local education agencies (LEAs) in creating, improving, and expanding career technical education (CTE) courses, course sequences, programs of study, and pathways for students transitioning from secondary education to postsecondary education to living-wage employment. ("K12 Strong Workforce," California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office, 2020, . 25 January 2020.)

The VCOE Career Education Department works closely with our regional community colleges in support of program development and seamless transitions for the 44,000 high school students in districts throughout Ventura County


  • K12 SWP Site Visits begin in January 2023 and allow the SWP team to highlight CTE Programs funded by Rounds 2, 3, and 4. K12 SWP Site Visits are instrumental in identifying how programs vary to best meet the community's needs and provide context when offering assistance to support LEAs in developing and implementing high-quality K–14 CTE course sequences, programs, and pathways.
