The Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) program regulation (11 KAR 15:090) has been modified to specify that only CTE pathway approved cooperative education courses may count as more than one course for purposes of satisfying yearly KEES curriculum requirements. Work-based learning opportunities not approved for and connected to CTE career pathways, may only count as one course towards KEES curriculum requirements.
Eligibility requirements that govern CTE cooperative education can be found within administrative regulation 705 KAR 4:041, Work-based learning program standards.
