Clark County ESC Earns High-Performing ESC Designation
Additional funding will benefit Clark County students this year from the Clark County Educational Service Center’s designation as a high-performing educational service center.
The Ohio Department of Education announced Friday, October 14, that the Clark County ESC had earned the designation through its application process. The designation comes with an additional $2 in funding per student for all students who attend client school districts.
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 shows that the Clark County ESC’s commitment to high-quality services at affordable costs is paying off in savings for taxpayers,” said ESC Superintendent Dan Bennett. “It also brings additional resources to our local community to support students in Clark County.”
The ODE requires 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 $3.2 million in savings for local school districts through shared services that maximize tax dollars in our community.
The Clark County ESC was one of 52 high-performing ESCs in the state. Every ESC applied for and received the designation.
