The GCESC Business Advisory Council accomplishments during the 2017-18 school year & 2018-19 school year:

  • Created the BAC Mission Statement at the November 2017 meeting.
  • Discussed roles and responsibilities of the BAC. (3 main areas per ORC)
  • Continued to add business members and community members over the past two years.
  • The BAC is made up of approximately 30 members including but not limited to the following: School Personnel (Superintendents or Designees), GCESC Board Members, Educational Foundation Representative, Chamber of Commerce Member, Attorney, Real Estate Agent, College/University Representatives, Military Representative, WPAFB Representative, Manufacturing Representative, OhioMeansJobs Representative, Director of Development, Toward Independence Representative, and others.
  • The BAC examined the OhioMeansJobs website and “toured” it during its September 2018 meeting.
  • Each school district has looked at and examined their own business partnerships and more work will center around this in the coming school year.
  • The BAC ensured that a member of the Dayton Region Manufacturing Association (DRMA) was asked to participate on the team. The President of DRMA has agreed to be on the BAC and attended the February 2019 meeting.
  • The BAC determined that the GCESC would have a webpage dedicated to the work of the BAC and house information, resources and artifacts of the BAC. That webpage is available at http://www.greeneesc.org/BusinessAdvisoryCouncil.aspx
  • The BAC read articles on both “soft skills” and “college paths or other paths for students” and determined that both should be loaded onto our BAC website. The BAC wants eductors, parents, and students to understand the need for soft-skill development and the need for students to be exposed to many types of careers—those that require college and those that do not. The BAC webpage will be a portal for these types of articles and resources.
  • BAC will promote the manufacturing website on its BAC webpage. www.makingohio.com
  • OhioMeansJobs is holding a Job Fair at Xenia High School on March 13, 2019. The BAC will help to promote this event.
  • The BAC will hold its fourth meeting of the school year on June 19th, 2019. BAC will determine its meetings dates and times for the 2019-20 school year.
  • The BAC will determine additional activities for the coming school year.
 
Next meeting:
