Regional Occupational Centers and Programs (Flexible Funds)


Funding Description

Funding for this program is unrestricted pursuant to SBX3 4 (Chapter 12, Statutes of 2009), enacted February 2009. For additional information, please refer to the Action on 2008 and 2009 Budget Acts Web page.

Before 2008-09, the funds were restricted to the Regional Occupational Centers and Programs (ROC/Ps), which allocated funds to school districts and county offices of education (local educational agencies). The ROC/P programs provide valuable career and technical education to high school students 16 years of age and older, and adult students so they can (1) enter the workforce with skills and competencies to be successful; (2) pursue advanced training in postsecondary educational institutions; or (3) upgrade existing skills and knowledge.
