The Washington Career and Technical Education (CTE) program standards call for an advisory committee to be established and maintained. An advisory committee is a committee whose members should represent business and industry, education, labor organizations, special populations, community, government, students, parents and teachers. A majority of these members shall 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 committee provides advice in the design, development, delivery, evaluation and continuous improvement of Career and Technical Education programs.
