The Clark County Educational Service Center has received designation as a High-Performing ESC by the Ohio Department of Education.
New in fiscal year 2017, the ODE required Educational Service Centers to apply for high-performing status, documenting services provided to local school districts that demonstrated savings. The Clark County ESC demonstrated more than $1.2 million in savings for local school districts through shared services that maximize tax dollars in our community.
The ODE announced Oct. 14 that the Clark County ESC was one of 52 high-performing ESCs in the state. Every ESC applied for and received the designation.
Educational Service Centers are public agencies that help school districts provide high-quality, fiscally-responsible services through sharing the costs with other schools.
The high-performing ESC designation means the Clark County ESC will receive an additional $2 in funding per student for fiscal year 2017.
“The Clark County ESC is committed to providing support for our schools and the students of our community through high-quality and affordable educational services,” said Superintendent Dan Bennett. “Not only does this designation confirm that we are meeting our commitment to our schools, the additional funding gives us the opportunity to do even more to support high-quality education for the students of Clark County.”
