Bryan ISD Continuing Fight To Protect Cosmetology And Barbering Programs From Proposed State Changes

The Bryan school district has a combined 148 students in cosmetology and barbering programs.

School board president Mark McCall and representatives of other districts may be returning to the legislature next year to protect thousands of career and technical education (CTE) programs that might be eliminated by the Texas Education Agency.

McCall says the TEA is now considering whether to not recognize cosmetology and barbering in the new A through F rating system because of the average pay in those professions.

TEA is also considering removing those occupations from the rating system because they don’t require going to college or getting another form of advanced education.

The TEA could also change state funding…which in Bryan based on current enrollment means the loss of as much as $1 million dollars.

McCall says programs under consideration for the district’s new CTE center would not be affected by the proposed state cuts.
