Business Advisory Council

West Branch Local School District is aligned with both the Mahoning Valley Business Advisory Council and the Columbiana County Business Advisory Council.

These relationships allow our students and staff to connect with local businesses, provide West Branch students with advice, opportunities, insights, and experience about in-demand careers, possible career paths and connecting student interests with real-world opportunities.
