ORC 3313.82 requires boards of education in Ohio to create a business advisory council to advise and provide recommendations to the board of education. Under 3313.843 under the Revised Code school districts can receive these services from an educational service center (ESC) and is not required to appoint a council if the school district and educational service center agree that the educational service center council will represent the business of the district.
The Chagrin Falls Board of Education has entered into such an agreement with the Northeast Ohio ESC. They have developed a Business Advisory Council plan that has been filed with the Ohio Department of Education per ORC 3313.821.
The Northeast Ohio Business Advisory Council convenes quarterly and meetings are free and open to the public.
Minutes from the Northeast Ohio Business Advisory Council meetings are posted on the ESC website: www.escneo.org Meeting minutes are electronically disseminated to the school district and provided as an update to the Chagrin Falls Board of Education.
