The Ohio General Assembly provides for and supports a statewide network of Educational Service Centers or ESCs.
So what are ESCs and what does the state get for its investment?
ESCs are student-focused, customer-driven educational service providers that maximize federal, state, and local dollars. ESCs provide innovative educational and operational support services that improve teaching and learning for all kids of all abilities regardless of where they live and attend school.
So what is the state’s return on investment? Significant.
Ohio ESC services impacted more than 1.75 million students while saving districts money and leveraging other resources to drive improvement.
How? The $26 per student from the state allowed ESCs to pursue and secure another $104 per student in grants.
The student is at the heart of everything we do.
