CALL TO ACTION: Support Career Technical Education in Our Schools

Sign the petition for O'Donnell's AB 1743, help secure ongoing funding for critical programs

Dear Neighbor,

As a teacher, I know firsthand that Vocational/Career Technical Education (CTE) programs engage students and reduce drop-out rates. These critical programs also strengthen the California economy by preparing our students to excel in the workforce and land well-paying jobs after graduation.Sign the Petition

Current funding for K-12 CTE expires this year. Assembly Bill 1743 continues funding for these much-needed programs at $500 million per year. This is a top priority for me, and I am pleased by the strong, bi-partisan support behind this effort.

Please show your support for this critical measure by signing the petition and sharing with your family and friends.




Patrick O'Donnell
Assemblymember, 70th Assembly District
