Businesses are important partners who help shape educational experiences for all students. Businesses can partner with schools to share news about job trends and opportunities, as well as economic changes that will affect jobs.
They can play a vital role in district curriculum development and help create new opportunities for students, such as work-based learning experiences.
To help build relationships between businesses and schools Ohio law (ORC 3313.82) requires every school district to have a Business Advisory Council.
PURPOSE OF BUSINESS ADVISORY COUNCIL:
Business Advisory Council fosters cooperation among schools, businesses, and communities they serve. This work ensures the work of educators aligns with the needs of the 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.
The council meets four times annually from 8 - 9:30 a.m. at the Hamilton City School District BOE Office (533 Dayton Street) on the following dates:
Thursday, September 19, 2019 (Focus: District Strategic Plan and Promotion)
Thursday, November 21, 2019 (Focus: Alignment of HS Programming - Butler Tech)
Thursday, February 20, 2020 (Focus: Use of Technology and Workforce Skills)
Thursday, April 16, 2020 (Focus: Business Opportunities in the Hamilton Area)
Each meeting will have a general focus with additional agenda items added when deemed necessary.
Hamilton City Schools appreciates your commitment to our students and looks forward to your participation at our 2019-20 Business Advisory Council Meetings.
