• Local Advisory Committees

    Do you hold a professional position in the workforce? We need you! Please consider joining one of our Career & Technical Education (CTE) Advisories. Help improve CTE classes at our four high schools and three middle schools! Our career pathways are listed below.
    Contact the school district teacher leader below on how you can be a part of improving CTE programs for that particular program or contact Brad Hooper. All CTE programs are guided by the advice of local business leaders. Business or employees of business share insight on what employees need to know to be successful in the field, what industry standards are expected, how technology is changing in the workplace, and many other related issues. Advisory committees review program goals, curriculum, and resources such as textbooks, technology, and equipment.
    These committees meet three times a year to discuss program planning and share ideas. Members often play a role in the classroom by providing guest speakers, field trips to their businesses, job shadows, and part-time employment for students. The general CTE advisory committee meets monthly with other local school districts. Help improve CTE programs at your local school!
    If you would like to be a part of an advisory committee or would like more information, contact the School District Teacher Leader below or review the CTE Advisory Brochure.
