Legislature passes career-track bill

JACKSON — The Mississippi Senate has sent the governor a bill that allows the state’s high schools to offer career-track courses for students who don’t plan to attend a four-year university.

The Senate yesterday passed the bill, which had earlier passed the House.

The bill outlines 20 course unit requirements for the so-called career track curriculum. Students who choose to go that route would still have to earn four units of English and at least three each in math, science and social studies.

The legislation also allows a student to have a dual enrollment in a community or technical college.

The bill is Senate Bill 2389.
