A large group of business people, local officials, educators, interested parties and staff gathered June 1st at Southeast Arkansas Community Based Education Center to enjoy a meal and hear updates on the status of the various educational programs offered by the Center.  The advisory committees meet with their respective classes and were briefed on the past year and offered suggestions for the future.

SEACBEC advisory committees meet with each class taught through the school.  The committees are utilized to help give direction to the type subjects that need to be taught and the best methods to be used in teaching the students.
