9141 - BUSINESS ADVISORY COUNCIL
The Board of Education recognizes the increasing importance to the nation's productivity and future well-being of its citizens that students enter the labor market with employable skills and attitudes. The Board and staff of the District also recognize that the necessary educational effort involves close cooperation among interested parties and that decisions regarding the curriculum should not be made without appropriate input from those affected by the educational results.
In order to obtain more effective assistance from one group particularly affected by the students' entry-level skills, the potential employer, the Board shall establish a Business Advisory Council to serve as a continuing advisory group to the Board and administration.
The Council shall be composed of five members. A majority shall be selected from among the leaders of commercial and industrial organizations operating within the District or within the area that provides the majority of employment for the District's citizens.
The purpose of the Council shall be to assist the staff and Board in determining whether or not its curriculum is and continues to be both appropriate and adequate for ensuring that students can enter the labor force with knowledge, attitudes, and skills that are considered relevant by employers.
The Council shall further provide recommendations to the Board concerning changes in the economy and the job market, and the types of employment in which future jobs are most likely to be available; and provide suggestions for developing a working relationship among businesses, labor organizations, and educational personnel in the District.
The Council shall operate in accordance with the standards established by the Superintendent of Public Instruction. The Council and Board will develop a plan specifying matters upon which the Council will advise and make recommendations to the Board. The plan shall be filed with the Ohio Department of Education. At a minimum, the Council will meet quarterly with the Board. The Council and the Board will annually develop and file with the Ohio Department of Education a joint statement describing how the Board and the Council have fulfilled their responsibilities in accordance with policy and State law. The statement will be submitted by March 1st each year.
