For at least three years Kenowa Hills Public Schools has invited local business representatives to participate in its  district’s business advisory committee.  Staff and administration have been searching  for local businesses leaders for.and support in guiding our career and technical courses. 

Participants discussed what they looked for in prospective candidates, not only in acquired skills and education but also in the ability to adapt to each specific trade. 
Mr. Mike Johnson, KHHS Applied Technology and Drafting Instructor moderated the discussion.  He also discussed what Kenowa Hills was currently offering students such as classes in Drafting, Computer Applications, Web Page Design, Automotive, Small Engine, and Photography.

Kenowa Hills Public Schools currently offers classes in Drafting, Computer Applications, Web Page Design, Automotive, Small Engine, and Photography.   Your expertise can help us to guide areas of emphasis in our curriculum as well as lead discussions about potential future offerings.
Kenowa Hills is currently working to establish an alignment with state guidelines for Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs, while also incorporating science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum from organizations such as Skills USA and Project Lead The Way (PLTW).  They are also pursuing grants to help cover many of the costs required to run elective programs such as these.  One of the objectives of today's meeting was to set up an advisory committee consisting of business, industry, labor, parents, academic and Career and Technical Training teachers, administrators, faculty and councilors.
