SGTC Early Childhood Care and Education Advisory Council Meets
South Georgia Technical College’s (SGTC) early childhood care and education (ECCE) program advisory committee met recently on the college’s Americus campus to discuss the current state of the program and the industry as a whole.
The purpose of the advisory committee is to assist South Georgia Tech faculty and staff in continuous quality improvement of the ECCE program. SGTC’s early childhood instructors, Jaye Cripe of the Americus campus and Lisa Penton of the Cordele campus, provided the committee with updates and information about program changes, enrollment, community activities, and student news.
The advisory committee members provide information to SGTC faculty and staff about suggested improvements in curriculum, new technology and methods, employment/internship opportunities available for students, and salary levels students may anticipate upon graduation.
Members present at the advisory committee meeting were Monica Warren, Principal, Crisp County Primary School and Verneda Johnson, Family Services Director, Macon County Board of Education. Also serving on the advisory committee are: Lakisha Evans, Tri County Head Start Buena Vista Center Supervisor; Brandi Roland, School Counselor, Sumter Co Primary School; and Monica Jennings, Quality- Rated Supervisor, Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.
The advisory committee is a crucial link that provides an avenue for South Georgia Tech instructors to learn about changing conditions or technology in the workplace that can then be passed along to students that will enable them to be fully prepared upon graduation.
