Ohio Lt. Governor Jon Husted, along with Interim State Superintendent Dr. Stephanie Siddens, announced that the Columbiana County Schools Business Advisory Council has been recognized for the second year as a Four-Star Business Advisory Council.

All Ohio school districts and Educational Service Centers need to have a Business Advisory Council. Ohio is proud to be home to over 120 Business Advisory Councils. These locally focused partnerships convene education and business leaders to engage in dialogue, build trust and identify strategies that transform the student learning experience. The on-going, intentional collaboration can result in a more responsive education system based on regional economic drivers and needs, more relevant learning experiences for students that include work-based learning opportunities and enduring partnerships between schools and local industries.
