Business Partnerships

 The focus of the Business Partnerships subcommittee is to create a process for CTE teachers to connect with business and industry.  Although we know that many great connections are being made everyday in CTE classrooms across the state, we have identified a gap in a systematic approach to business partnerships. 
 
The note and resources on this site are intended to inform the conversation about what business/education partnerships look like?

  • What is our goal?  inch deep, mile wide?  Or do one thing really well?
  • Chamber of Commerce--Amanda spends her summer visiting businesses in order to develop relationships--sitting down with them to "interview" them in order to bring the business partners into her classroom--it's a networking thing.
