Business Advisory Council Announced by Board of Education

HILLSBOROUGH, NC 11 DECEMBER 2017- The Board of Education voted to approve the initial list of the Business Advisory Council members.  The Business Advisory Council will serve the Board by identifying economic and workforce development trends related to the training and educational needs of the community. Also, the advisory council will advocate for strong, lasting local career and technical education programs. These programs will include work-based learning opportunities for students and prepare students for post-high school certifications and credentials for high-demand careers.

The initial Business Advisory Council members were appointed by the Board of Education, and the board divided initial appointments into four groups as equal in size as practicable. The board  designated appointments in group one to serve four-year terms, in group two to serve three-year terms, in group three to serve two-year terms, and in group four to serve one-year terms. As terms expire for business and industry representatives initially appointed by the board, the council will appoint subsequent members to the council for four-year terms.
