School Business Advisory Council

The School Business Advisory Council (SBAC) is a vital link in connecting the District's academic programs to the world of work beyond high school. The council seeks out partnerships to provide GJPS students with career awareness, mentoring, and job-shadowing opportunities. The SBAC also provides industry insights related to various vocational programs and supports numerous student recognition programs.

The Gahanna-Jefferson Education Foundation (GJEF), an outgrowth of the vision and leadership within the SBAC, provides scholarships and grants to further promote excellence within Gahanna-Jefferson Schools. Collaboratively, the GJPS, the SBAC and the GJEF create Partnership News, an annual publication highlighting the outstanding community, civic and business partners supporting the work of educating the more than 7,000 students and future leaders throughout the District.
