Proposed Bond Could Benefit BRCOT
Support for CTE Funding Gaining Traction
BRCOT Director, Paulette Bonneau, was recently interviewed by News Center Maine about the significant infrasturucre and equipment needs througout the State of Maine.

Career & Technical Education Leaders testified before the Education and Cultural Affairs Committee last week to support two bills that would provide funds to upgrade infrastructure for Maine’s 27 CTE Centers.

A $20 Million bill to update equipment and capital outlay was tabled while another bill for $4 Million was moved unto the Governor’s supplemental budget and, if approved, could eventually amount to $9 Million in the Governor's budget to be split amongst the State cost-sharing formula.

The last time the State invested in CTE improvements was 1998.
