ESC Receives "High Performing Designation" 
 October 2016 - The Ohio Dept. of Education has awarded the ESC of Lorain County its "High Performing ESC" designation. This is the first year ODE has given out this award. 
To earn the award, our ESC demonstrated a savings of over 33% (well above the award threshold) for our client districts in five service areas - preschool, alternative school, executive searches, tech PD, and occupational therapy. These are just a few of the areas where the ESC saves our districts dollars through shared services and other cost saving measures.
