FSCC expands occupational programs in Bourbon County

Fort Scott, Kansas – Starting August 18, Fort Scott Community College will be offering Senate Bill 155 (SB155) approved courses in five content areas on its Bourbon County campuses. The areas include Allied Health, Carpentry, Machining, Manicuring and Welding.

Senate Bill 155 was implemented by the Kansas Legislature to provide funding for college tuition to Kansas high school students earning college credit and industry credentials in technical education courses.

Fort Scott Community College has been in contact with Fort Scott High School, Uniontown High School, Pleasanton High School and Jayhawk-Linn High School on the development of SB155 programs in Bourbon County. All four schools are planning to send students to the campus in Fort Scott for these programs.

Dr. Clayton Tatro has also been in regular contact with community leaders regarding both workforce development opportunities and facilitating Senate Bill 155 options for students.

Tatro said, “Considerable conversation has led to the decision that FSCC should save tax payer dollars by using existing facilities on the main campus and our East Campus.”

Certain fees may apply depending on the course taken. Students must be a Kansas resident attending a Kansas high school and have the principal’s approval to enroll.

Students interested in technical education courses through Fort Scott Community College should speak with their school counselor or call FSCC’s occupational recruiter, Judy Meister, at (620) 223-2700, extension 5247.

Other prospective students interested in technical education may also contact Judy Meister.
