Advisory Board

The CompetencyWorks Advisory Board is designed to ensure that we approach competency education from many different perspectives:

  • Students on track to graduation and over-age, undercredited students that may be out of school
  • Traditional school environments, blended learning, and online schools
  • School, district, state and national perspectives
  • Urban and rural
  • Multi-state

We are grateful to the leadership, creativity, and expertise that the advisory board brings to our work. They are all working day in and day out on competency education in their own communities and networks, yet find the time to contribute to building our national capacity.
