Business Advisory Council

The ESC’s Business Advisory Council fosters cooperation among schools, businesses and the communities they serve. This work ensures that the work of educators aligns with the needs of businesses. This cooperation can make a local education system more aware of the local labor market; promote work-based experiences within businesses; and help students prepare for successful learning and employment opportunities.

Based on Ohio Revised Code 3313.82, the Business Advisory Council shall advise and provide recommendations on matters including:
  • the delineation of employment skills and the development of curriculum to instill these skills;
  • changes in the economy and in the job market, and the types of employment in which future jobs are most likely to be available; and
  • suggestions for developing a working relationship among businesses, labor organizations, and educational personnel.
