County offices, as intermediate agents between the State Department of Education and the districts, have moved from being primarily administrative and regulatory agencies for local school districts to providers of necessary services and consultation for both local and city school districts. They provide effective, efficient, and economical services which districts might have difficulty providing on their own or work with districts on collaborations and consortiums that help provide needed services. Some county offices have joined together so that today there are 52 educational service centers.
This organization is dedicated to providing administrative, curricular, instructional, instructional technology, pupil personnel, and professional development services to the schools of Geauga County and assisting them in reaching their educational objectives. These services are primarily designed to assist boards of education, administrators, teachers, and other staff members so that they may provide engaging work to students and services that help students learn.
