General Revenue funding is currently available (to be used by June 15th 2016) for the testing of HS students. The funding is through our Missouri Certified Work Ready Communities initiative. http://ded.mo.gov/getcertified

To be eligible, counties must be participating in the initiative. I’ve attached a county map that shows those who are. Also attached is a flyer with specifics.

We are asking schools that are interested, to contact their CWRC committee chair person and they be the one to make application. If you are interested, email [email protected].
