Community Partners

Career and Technical Education Community Partners

Career and Technical Education (CTE) advisory committees advise, assist and provide support and advocacy for quality CTE programs. Advisory Committee volunteers help plan the training for our future workforce. The guidance and advice of local advisory committee members can help ensure students are learning the most current skills needed in the workplace. Bringing employers and educators together on Advisory Committees provides a format for sharing information and ideas. Advisory committee volunteers have the opportunity to learn more about the CTE program, and the instructor's are able to increase their understanding of the job market, employers' needs and community opportunities Career and Technical Education

CTE Advisory Committees:

1. Provide information to update, modify, expand, and improve the quality of programs.
2. Support and strengthen the partnerships between business, labor, the community, and education.
3. Make recommendations that will strengthen and expand the CTE curriculum, and provide assistance in implementing these recommendations.
4. Identify and validate academic and occupational competencies, determining priorities, and review and evaluate programs.
5. Communicate long-term goals and objectives of the CTE programs to students, parents, employers, and the community.

Interested in participating on an Advisory Committee? We welcome volunteers throughout the year.
Please contact Diane Storm, CTE Administrative Assistant, to receive information on the Advisory you are interested in.
