|Subject:||CTE Administrator Membership on Local Work Force Development Board|
|Each Workforce Development Board (WDB) engages with Career & Technical Centers (CTCs) 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.
I plan to introduce legislation which would require each local WDB to include in its membership at least one administrator of a CTC 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
This legislation is a part of a bipartisan Career and Technical Education (CTE) legislative package, with the goal 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. I hope you will join me in co-sponsoring this important measure.
Introduced as HB396
