The Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) program regulation (11 KAR 15:090) has been modified to specify that only one cooperative education course per academic year will count for purposes of satisfying yearly KEES curriculum requirements.
Therefore, beginning with the 2012-2013 academic year, course codes have be included in the KEES eligibility determination. For more information, please refer to the Kentucky Uniform Academic Course Code.
Eligibility requirements that govern CTE cooperative education can be found within administrative regulation 705 KAR 4:041, Work-based learning program standards.
