The Fall meetings for the Chapter 74 Program Advisory Committee at Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School were held on October 11, 2006. One committee exists for each of the vocational technical programs at the school.
Under the requirements of M.G.L. Chapter 74, each vocational technical program at the school must have an Advisory Committee comprised of representatives of local businesses and industry (related to the program area), organized labor, parents, and students. The Advisory Committee assists school personnel on equipment acquisitions, curriculum, instructional methods, and program evaluation.
The meetings of the various committees began with dinner prepared and served by the Culinary Arts Department at Old Colony. The various committees then met in respective laboratories and shops with the Old Colony instructors.
