Goals: Local Advisory Committees/Partnerships are as varied as the needs of students and the interests of businesses in the community. The necessary ingredients of a good committee/partnership are a genuine concern for the education of children and an interest in creating a linkage in which both the students and the business benefit.

The general goals of a committee/partnership are:

  • To enhance the educational experience of all students through greater exposure to the various resources, which exist in business, institutions, organized labor, and organizations serving the community.
  • To involve businesses in those school programs and decisions which will directly and indirectly benefit the business
  • To enhance communication between schools and businesses so that both have a more realistic view of the other and a greater sense of common purpose
  • To promote improved linkage between education and the world of work
  • To improve the quality of life in any town for all its citizens
