Welcome to the Allen County ESC!

From the Desk of Dr. Wittwer:

     Welcome to the Allen County Educational Service Center, where our mission is to provide quality service options and programming for the community, school districts, families and students of Allen County. Through collaboration with our many partners, instruction/support is enhanced while costs are contained.  These partnerships with school districts provide high quality services to students from preschool age to young adulthood. We are committed to improving the lives of the young people with whom we work through service, professional development training and support, with leadership, vision, and commitment to respond to changing educational needs.

Please take a few minutes to review our web site to learn more about the services and programs offered here at the ACESC.  We are extremely very proud of what we do for our students and are always interested in new and innovative ideas that will help us to better fulfill our goal of ensuring the success of every child.

      Feel free to contact us with any questions, thoughts, and inquiries at 419-222-1836.

Walter All-Scholastic Award winner for the 2013-14 school year.  This award recognizes one senior from each of Ohio’s 88 counties for outstanding student achievement.

     The award is named after Dr. Franklin B. Walter, a former State Superintendent whose work in education was respected and admired by educators nationwide. Each school district chose one applicant encompassing outstanding academic achievement, leadership roles, hard work and involvement with schools and community, as well as student honors to represent Allen County. While all nominees were exemplary, Katherine was chosen to represent our county.

     Congratulations to Katherine for this statewide recognition!
