About the Business Education Partnership

  • Education is one key element in the economic development of Berkeley County. With this in mind the Business Education Partnership program works to increase contact between students and local businesses.

    Berkeley County has more than 59 business partners who are committed to the 19,500+ students in the district. This relationship has benefited both the schools and the area businesses. Their collaboration has spurred several accomplishments, some of which include:

    1. Presenting an annual recognition program for Berkeley County Schools’ recipients.

    2. Establishing Business Education Partnership scholarships for each of the four high schools. 

    3. Assisting with the passage of $51.5 million bond for school construction in September 2009.

    4. Serving as a viable committee of the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Chamber of Commerce. 

    5. Developing a grant initiative to fund school projects and educational needs.
