$13 Million grant helps students pursue high-paying tech jobs

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Education and city leaders are scheduled Wednesday to announce a $13 million state grant to help students pursue high-paying tech jobs.

San Diego County Superintendent of Schools Randolph Ward, San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten, San Diego Community College District Chancellor Constance Carroll, Mayor Kevin Faulconer and United Way President Kevin Crawford are among those slated to appear at a news conference to announce the award.

The money from the state Department of Education will go to the County Office of Education, and will lead to a regional approach that prepares students for employment in advanced manufacturing, clean energy, and information and communications technology.

The program will involve 15 school districts, five community college districts and participants in three industry sectors.

The mayor's office said San Diego Unified will receive $2.3 million of the grant money.

A spokeswoman for the United Way said the nonprofit will help coordinate the work by the various partners.
