The mission of the System of Education Service Centers is to improve student achievement in Texas by developing high quality services that enable schools to operate more efficiently and economically, and to support educators as they prepare the future workforce of Texas.
ESCs focus on the word in the middle: Service. Service to, and support of, educators in helping students succeed is at the heart of everything that we do. Every service we provide was developed at the request of schools and we pride ourselves on being responsive to the needs of educators and the communities that they serve.
ESCs help in a variety of ways. Whether it is curriculum support, technology hosting, or bringing districts together to ensure that all students have good foods to eat; ESCs are there to serve schools. This allows schools to divert more resources to the classroom and focus on educating children to build a better Texas.
The ESC staff anticipates the needs of classroom teachers and they provide opportunities for teachers to hone their craft and go back to the classroom with relevant teaching strategies. I know I will continue to grow as an educator through the assistance of my region and their amazing staff.
ESCs make a difference for our children. Everyone on their staff is so helpful and friendly – from the maintenance guys who open up the building to custodians who clean up at the end of the day – consistently EVERYONE is committed! Special thanks to all.
Educational Service Centers are absolutely indispensable to Shamrock ISD. We are a small, rural school district and have no accessibility to the services they provide. If we were not able to access these services from our ESC, there would be no way we could offer the quality education to our students they deserve.
Our experience has been great! We trust the programs and the support our ESC has provided in helping us achieving our district’s success.
