Specialized Secondary Programs (SSP) provides start-up funds for the establishment of new specialized programs in grades nine through twelve in California high schools.

The Legislature intends for SSP to benefit the state economy by having schools located in close proximity to related industries. Funding is available for planning and implementing new programs.
