H103 - 2022 Appropriations Act. (SL 2022-74)
Session Year 2022
Overview: Section 6.1 of S.L. 2022-74 extends the implementation of the RISE Up credentialing program (program) beyond only students at cooperative innovative high schools to also include students at community colleges. Additionally, the program must be implemented through the 2021-2023 fiscal biennium rather than only the 2021-2022 fiscal year.

This section modifies the interim and final reports required of the Community Colleges System Office to various entities, including the Joint Legislative Education Oversight Committee, to be due December 1, 2022, and December 1, 2023, respectively, and modifies the content requirements for the reports to make clarifying changes and include the following additional information:

  • Require information on the number of students who are in the process of receiving credentials, rather than only students who have received credentials.
  • Require a list of community colleges and cooperative innovative high schools participating in the program.

This section became effective July 1, 2022, and the extension to community college students applies to students enrolled at community colleges in the 2022-2023 academic year.
