Business Advisory Council
The goal of the Business Advisory Council (BAC) is to provide (1) an opportunity for business-to-education connections via guest speakers and industry tours, (2) internships and job-shadowing opportunities, and (3) curriculum alignment to the needs of today’s workforce.
Within the council, we have several subgroups divided by academic classification (see chart below). Each subgroup has specific goals tailored around their curriculum needs for students.
For more information on joining the BAC, please email the CTE Personnel Responsible for the program of study in which you are interested.
