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

The legislation requires that the Michigan Education Department post information on its website 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 law requires that students be given information about meeting graduation requirements with career tech programs. It also strongly encourages schools to create programs whose completion counts toward getting a professional certificate, apprenticeship, training or college credit in a career and technical field.

Snyder says skilled trade jobs “are constantly in demand” and it’s important to ensure students know about them.
