LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Legislature has sent Gov. Rick Snyder legislation requiring the state to provide information about career and technical education programs to school officials who ask for it.

The legislation approved unanimously Tuesday by the Senate will make the Education Department post on its website information about best practices in career tech education. Legislators want to better publicize ways career tech classes can be used to fulfill high school graduation requirements.

The bill requires that students be given information about meeting graduation requirements with career tech programs. Schools are “strongly encouraged” to create programs whose completion counts toward getting a professional certificate, apprenticeship, training or college credit in a career and technical field.
