The Spokane Valley CTE General Advisory Council and Committees


In order to provide focus for business/industry partners and teachers, the Spokane Valley advisory committees are organized generally around career clusters.  With growth, these can be narrowed to more specific occupational areas and collaborations.

These are the Spokane Valley CTE Program Advisory Committees. These groups of teachers and business and industry volunteers meet quarterly or more often depending on their scope of work. To participate in a committee meeting, please contact us and let us know which one is of interest. We are always interested in business member participation.

General Advisory Council (GAC)

The GAC oversees all program advisory committees and provides additional outreach. It consists of district CTE administrators, the business chair from each program committee, several at-large members and district career and college counselors.
