COMMUNITY ALLIANCES - "Creating Effective Advisory Committees" emphasizes the importance of expanding your resources to include local business members who are prominent community business leaders and professionals. These people want to get involved in the schools - have you invited them into your classroom? Teaching can be a very lonely profession, and it is easy to avoid looking beyond your four walls to seek assistance from business professionals outside of your school building. Community business leaders would welcome the opportunity to be of assistance in your classroom but are seldom invited. Why not invite them to participate and support what you are doing with your students by adding their expertise to the mix?
Are you in the process of establishing an Advisory Committee for your program/content area? Do you have any idea as to where to begin the process? Did you know that an Advisory Committee is helpful in many areas of your school: academic programs, administrative levels, counseling, and others . . . not just CTE programs?
This comprehensive booklet provides you with the tools to create an effective academic and/or CTE advisory committee. This booklet is an excellent resource to assist you in establishing quality community alliances whereby business professionals offer excellent resources for your classroom as well as the entire school community. If you are a CTE teacher and have not established an Advisory Committee, you need this booklet!
“Creating Effective Advisory Committees” includes information on and samples of:
• Letters to committee members
• Charters (Plan of Action)
• Committee member selection process
• Duties of committee members
• Agendas and what to include
• Minutes of meeting
• . . . and more
Who could ask for more? Establishing outstanding community alliances with the professionals in your community is essential to building a strong academic program that benefits your students. After all, they will soon be viable employees in a business/company (in or outside of their local community) or they will choose to become entrepreneurs and own their own businesses. Incorporate these new thought-provoking strategies into your teaching repertoire and that of your department.
