Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session

Subject: CTE Administrator Membership on Local Work Force Development Board
In the near future, as part of the bipartisan Career and Technical Education (CTE) legislative package, I plan to introduce legislation to improve the delivery of CTE in the Commonwealth. This package of legislation is a result of the recommendations of the Select Subcommittee on Technical Education and Career Readiness (Select Committee) established pursuant to HR 102 of 2015

It was discovered during the Select Committees hearing process that each Workforce Development Board (WDB) engages with CTE in various ways across the Commonwealth and given that WDBs are the channel through which employment information and data flows from the state to local school districts and CTCs, the partnership between these entities needs addressed.

In an effort to strengthen the lines of communication between local secondary CTE programs and WDBs, it would be beneficial for WDBs to consistently engage with these stakeholders through their participation on their boards.

Under this legislation, each local WDB would be required to include in its membership at least one administrator of a career and technical center whose attendance area is covered by the service area of the WDB.

This effort will ensure that local communication with WDBs is consistent across the commonwealth to improve delivery of their technical programs

Please join me in co-sponsoring this very important legislation.

Introduced as HB2206
