Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 205 - This act modifies the A+ Schools program by adding a requirement that high schools in the program shall demonstrate a commitment to ensure that all students earn credits towards any type of college degree while in high school. The Department of Higher Education shall establish a procedure for the reimbursement of the cost of tuition and fees for any dual-credit or dual-enrollment course offered to a student in high school in association with a public community college or vocational or technical school.

Currently, to be eligible for the program, a student must have attended a high school in Missouri for at least three years prior to graduation. This act provides that the student must have attended a high school in the state for at least two years.

The Department shall, under this act, distribute reimbursements first to community college or vocational or technical school students, then to any dual-credit or dual-enrollment students, on the basis of financial need.

This act is identical to SCS/HB 485 (2019), SS#2/SCS/SB 292 (2019), SS#2/SCS/HCS/HB 604 (2019), and is substantially similar to HB 221 (2019), HB 454 (2019), and HB 2412 (2018).
