Perrysburg Schools Spotlight – January 2019 Edition

Perrysburg Schools Spotlight 
We hope you enjoy our monthly eNewsletter, spotlighting excellence in our programs, students and employees!

Program Spotlight
Business Advisory Council

Business Advisory CouncilThe Board of Education recognizes the importance of students entering the labor market with employable skills and attitudes. A Business Advisory Council has been established, primarily from commercial and industrial organizations operating within the school district, to provide recommendations concerning changes in the economy and job market, as well as provide suggestions for further developing relationships among businesses.

65% of secondary students are predicted to work in jobs that do not yet exist. This creates a major challenge for designing curriculum in education, training and retraining programs, as well as a critical need for accessible, flexible, lifelong learning resources. 75% of the companies expected to be listed on the S&P 500 in 2027 have yet to be established.

The questions the BAC is investigating include:
1. What skills are your company’s employees missing that you wish they had developed before they were hired?
2. What changes are you experiencing in the types of positions available or being created in your industry?
3. What emerging industries are you involved in or do you see coming?
4. What do high schools need to be doing today to prepare students for tomorrow?
5. What can the school district do in the short-term to make a difference for your business?
6. What capacity or interest is there in your company for job shadowing, mentorships or internships?
