Ross, Novella; Chase, Shirley
Local advisory councils are established for the purpose of advising local educational officials on current job needs and the relevance of courses being offered by their educational agency and to assist local division administrators in the development of the annual vocational plan. This guide presents a systematic approach to the organization and operation of local advisory groups for vocational education. The procedures outlined in this publication are based on identified techniques and strategies, and therefore establish a standard for organizing and operating local vocational education advisory groups. The publication defines advisory councils, details their legislative history, and sets up procedures for organizing, establishing, and operating a local vocational education council. It also treats occupational advisory council committees, and provides a handbook for vocational education advisory council members. Appendixes contain sample forms for use in organizing and maintaining an advisory council. A bibliography is included. (KC)
