CTE Advisory Committee
A CTE Advisory Committee is comprised of members who represent business and industry, education, labor organizations, special populations, community, government, students, parents, and teachers. A majority of these members share a working knowledge of the job tasks and competencies required for related occupations, related labor market needs, and courses necessary to meet these needs.
The advisory committee provides advice in the design, development, delivery, evaluation, and continuous improvement of Career and Technical Education programs. The committee meets on a regular basis.
It is the local district’s responsibility to effectively inform committee members of Washington State Career and Technical Education Program Standards and the Federal Perkins Act. (This definition is aligned with the Perkins Act, Washington State RCW 28C.04.100 and RCW 28A.150.500 as adopted by Washington State.)
There are two kinds of recognized Advisory Committees:
1) General Advisory Committee: provides direction and guidance to administrators and governing boards for the entire Career and Technical Education program offered by a district or institution.
2) Program Specific Advisory Committee: provides direction and guidance to administrators and teachers for a specific Career and Technical Education program offered by a district or institution.
