• CTE Advisory Committees

    Federal and State Laws mandate the creation and use of advisory committees. The Carl D. Perkins Law Section 122(c)(5) states that a school must create a plan that “describes how the eligible agency will actively involve parents, academic and career and technical education teachers, administrators, faculty, career guidance and academic counselors, local business (including small businesses), and labor organizations in the planning, development, implementation, and evaluation of such career and technical education programs” The Texas State Plan for Career and Technical Education additionally states that “Texas requires that eligible recipients annually evaluate their CTE program. Texas school districts have local advisory committees for CTE that are involved in decisions related to the implementation, improvement and evaluation of CTE programs.”
