A Resource Guide on Local Vocational Education Advisory Councils for Administrators and Instructors.
Giese, Harlan E.; And Others
This resource guide provides information on vocational education advisory council structures, the purpose of local councils, and suggestions on ways to administer their operations efficiently. Three different types of vocational education advisory councils are described: local level (program and vocational general advisory councils), state level (State Advisory Council on Vocational Education), and national level (National Advisory Council on Vocational Education). General responsibilities and composition of local advisory councils are then listed. More specific information is provided on size and membership of vocational program advisory councils and vocational general advisory councils. Other areas covered are nominations and appointments of members, organization, orientation of council members, resource information for the council, and responsibilities of officers and members. Suggestions for a council program of work and agendas are also made. The role of the school representative as a resource is emphasized. Symbols of recognition or appreciation for local advisory council members are suggested. A flow chart is attached that illustrates the steps of procedure for planning for instructional improvement.
