High School Students:
Are you a high school student interested in taking this course?

The Kansas Senate passed Excel in CTE Initiative (SB155) in May 2012. This bill authorizes the state of Kansas to pay tuition charges for high school students taking specific tiered Career Technical Courses. Therefore, courses designated as Excel in CTE Initiative (SB155) will be available to high school students tuition-free (A savings of $1616!). Barton will also cover the students workshop fee ($100), practical testing fee ($100) and there is now no book charge.
