• The Washington Elementary School District Business Advisory Team was formed in September 2011 to develop, enhance and maintain mutually supportive, strategic relationships between Washington Elementary School District and its surrounding business community.

    The Business Advisory Team meets quarterly to share ideas and opportunities that are of mutual benefit to the business community and students. Business Advisory Team (BAT) membership has grown to 1,000+ individuals representing more than 400 companies, community groups and faith-based organizations. These groups are committed to ensuring that, through quality education, today’s students are prepared to become tomorrow’s employees, consumers and civic leaders.
