HB 2764 intends to improve access and completion rates of student parents enrolled in community and technical colleges by reducing existing restrictions to subsidized child care and address the teacher shortage in the state by allowing students receiving working connections child care program benefits to pursue certificates and degrees in teaching, paraeducation, and early childhood education without losing their working connections child care program benefits. 

By January 1, 2019, the department shall in consultation with the state board for community and technical colleges and the student achievement council, revise any rules that require work as a condition of receiving working connections child care program benefits. 

Any rules regarding the eligible types of certificates and degree programs shall be revised to include early childhood education, para-education, and teaching.
