The Montgomery County Educational Service Center (MCESC)  facilitates the state mandated Business Advisory Council (BAC) for both Montgomery and Warren counties’ public schools. The MCESC BAC’s mission is to ensure our workforce can compete by enhancing partnerships between schools, higher education, and employers. There are four main outcomes the MCESC BAC strives to achieve: ensuring student success and career readiness while in school, helping existing and new businesses thrive in our region, keeping talent in our region, and making Montgomery and Warren Counties great places to live and work.
