The Wadsworth City School Business Advisory Council is composed of areas leaders from commercial, industrial, and community organizations.  The group meets during the school year to actively participate in cooperative and career development of students, to serve as liaisons between the school system and the greater community, and to provide recommendations concerning changes in the economy and job market.  The bylaws of the Business Advisory Council can be accessed by clicking here.


Business Advisory Council Joint Statement - Wadsworth City School District

The Wadsworth City School District Business Advisory Council’s purpose is to be responsible for making recommendations to the Wadsworth City School District Board of Education on the following:

  1. Delineating employment skills and developing curriculum to instill these skills.

  2. Changes in the economy and job market, and the types of employment in which future jobs are most likely to be available.

  3. Developing a working relationship among business, labor and education personnel.

The goal of the Wadsworth City School District Business Advisory Council is to collaborate with our business community on identifying areas where school programming can enhance skills they would like to see in employees and areas where our district can study for future program expansion while educating them on programs and opportunities currently available in our schools.

During the 2019-2020 school year, the Council has met five (5) times to discuss programming within our school district and the State of Ohio graduation requirements.  The discussions have focused on how both of these areas align with the employment skills necessary for current and future jobs.
