Kent ISD Health Sciences Early College Academy partners with community
members and organizations to ensure curriculum content and student experience is in line with today's changing health care environment.
The advisory committee members are from institutions of higher education, area health care organizations, Kent ISD programs and former students. The advisory committees meet twice annually to review program curriculum and student achievement in the programs. Members suggest opportunities for improvement and bring valuable industry recomendations to the programs. Committee members also participate in student end of semester evaluations.
