What is an Educational Service Center?
A county educational service center serves a county school district which includes the territory within the limits of a county, exclusive of the territory embraced in any city or exempted village school district.
A county educational service center has no taxing power, nor does it have general powers to operate schools. It does have the authority to change local school district boundaries by creation, transfer, or consolidation of districts within it s system. The primary function of a county educational service center and its staff is to provide supervisory and special services to the local school districts within the county system.
