BILL NUMBER:S6452 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to establishing the pathways for academic career and employment program and the gap tuition assistance program PURPOSE: This bill seeks to establish a pathway for an academic career employment program (PACE). The bill aspires to assist "dislocated workers" who have been laid off or terminated, and who are now unlikely to return to the industry or trade that previously employed them.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 6460, article 1 defines what is determined to be a "dislocated worker," article 2 defines "federal poverty level," article 3 defines "low skilled," article 4 defines "underemployed," and article 5 defines "unemployed." Section 646.1 describes the Pathway for Academic Career Employment Program otherwise referred to as PACE in articles 1 through 6. Section 669 outlines the gall assistance tuition program including why it was established in article 1, eligibility in article 2, capacity in article 3, conditions for approval in article 4 and 5, costs in article 6, assessments in article 7, coordinator in article 8, conditions for maintaining tuition in article 9, and statewide oversight, evaluation and reporting in article 10.
