Path4Ward Program in search of additional school or district participant

Written by: Children's Campaign

The Path4Ward Program, established by SB21-106, allows students from households with low incomes who graduate early to receive funding for postsecondary education or training programs during what would have been their fourth year of high school. Postsecondary programs may be college enrollment or approved workplace learning programs like internships and apprenticeships. 

The pilot program lasts five years and is comprised of five schools or groups of schools from a mix of urban, suburban, and rural institutions. Participating schools will receive 25% of the average state share of per-pupil revenue for each participating student and are encouraged to apply these funds to counseling and support activities for potential and participating early graduates.  

The program is currently accepting open applications for an additional district or group of districts to participate in this pilot. Applications are due by Nov. 14. Learn more on the program’s website.
