Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 703 - Under this act, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education shall establish a process by which each student prior to 9th grade shall develop an individual career and academic plan of study, with help from the student's parent or guardian and the school's guidance counselors.

Before a student finishes 12th grade, the student shall declare the student's postsecondary plans as part of the student's individual career and academic plan. Such declaration shall include items set forth in the act.

The act also states that no student shall receive a certificate of graduation from any public school or charter school unless the student has completed and submitted the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. A student is exempt from this requirement under certain circumstances listed in the act.

These provisions shall become effective on July 1, 2023.

Finally, this act requires the Department of Higher Education and Workforce Development to establish a procedure for providing the means and capability for high school students enrolled in certain career and technical education programs to complete an application for aid through the Employment and Training Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor under the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.

This act is identical to provisions in SCS/SB 957 (2022), identical to provisions in SCS/HB 2202 (2022), provisions in SCS/HCS/HB 2304 (2022), substantially similar to provisions in the perfected HCS/HB 2171 (2022), and similar to SB 265 (2021).
