Welcome to the Community/Business/Schools Partnership (CBS)

CBS The Community/Business/Schools (C/B/S) Partnership was created in the early 1990’s to enhance mutually beneficial personal relationships among communities, businesses, and schools. The group has developed into a powerful catalyst matching community resources with the needs of the district, the students, the teachers and administrators and providing mutual benefit to the community and its businesses.

 C/B/S is considered a model program throughout Ohio and nationally. Other school districts within Ohio have sought information the C/B/S leaders to initiate similar programs in their communities.

As C/B/S partners, businesses, individuals, and groups set their own schedule of involvement and work directly with school personnel to tailor an activity best-suited to both the partner and the students. Over the years this has been done in a variety of ways by an ever-evolving group of members and volunteers. Over that span, C/B/S has earned recognition at the local, statewide, and national levels.

    The Community/Business/Schools Partnership met on March 20th at Broadview Multi-Care from 8:00-9:30am. Our sincere appreciation to BMC which also provided a full breakfast (Egg strada? Fruit salad? Gigantic cinnamon rolls? Bacon AND sausage? WOW!) for attendees which was an amazing way to start the day.
