On June 27, 2018, Governor Brown signed and enacted the 2018-19 CA Budget. In it is included $314M as follows: "In recognition that high-quality career technical education programs play a valuable role in preparing students to meet the state's labor market demands, the Budget includes $164 million ongoing Proposition 98 funding to establish a K-12 specific component within the Strong Workforce Program. This workforce development proposal is designed to encourage local educational agencies to offer high-quality career technical education programs that are aligned with needed industry skills and regional workforce development efforts occurring through the existing Strong Workforce Program, which is funded at $248 million annually. The state’s investment in career technical education is further complemented by the inclusion of $150 million ongoing Proposition 98 General Fund to make permanent the Career Technical Education Incentive Grant Program, mentioned above. Together, these programs, along with the funding provided through the LCFF, will enhance students' opportunities to participate in effective, high-quality career technical education programs that are aligned not only with college and career-readiness standards, but also with the needs of employers, industry, and labor".
