The Educational Service Center (ESC) of Cuyahoga County provides high quality assistance to school districts and agencies in order to offer a broad range of resources to support their missions to serve all learners.
These services can include everything from staffing to professional development services to options for alternative schooling. In many ways, the ESC acts as an intermediary between the school districts and the state, helping schools to comply with state regulations, interpret and address school report card data, and help with the administration of federal and state programs, initiatives, and grants.
One of the most valuable services provided by the ESC is the catalyst for collaboration. ESC districts are working together on shared services, professional development, technology programs, and other projects that mutually benefit the districts involved. By encouraging schools to come together to share best practices and working solutions, they increase the value provided by the school districts and the educational opportunities available to students.
