No, schools offering more than one CTE program of study are not required to operate multiple advisory boards. The CTE Central Industry Advisory Commissions may be used in lieu of local school advisory boards.

Lessons Learned:

  • While inviting industry partners to review the CTE program is integral to the program’s success meeting formally twice a year may be sufficient if smaller working groups are established to address specific program needs in between convenings of the larger group.
  • Attempting to run 4 or more separate advisory boards not only consumes a great deal of time and resources it may prevent connections from occurring which may serve multiple program needs.
