On February 17, 2009 Representatives Schneider, Vruwick, and Barca- along with Senator Wirch- proposed a bill that would require more evening classes at Wisconsin’s technical schools. Each college would be required to offer at least one-third of all class periods after 5 pm. Also, every class that is offered must be scheduled and taught after 5 pm at least once every three years. If passed, these regulations would go into effect at the beginning of the 2011-2012 school year. Want more information? See the bill here.
WECA understands that this bill may be helpful for child care providers, and our T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® WISCONSIN recipients, who are working hard to obtain college credits. Evening courses allow students to continue to work and care for children during the day while attending college at the same time.
