Mission Statement

The mission of the Allen County Educational Service Center is to provide educational services and leadership through collaborative efforts.

Philosophy of Service Delivery

The Allen County Educational Service Center provides vital services to Allen County pre-school and school-aged children. The Governing Board and staff view the member schools the most important unit of school operation and perceive the Allen County Educational Service Center’s function as an educational service agency, one that assists member districts in reaching their educational objectives. We believe that activities of the state and county should be service and consultative in nature, and that changes in services and methods should be made with the goal of increasing the effectiveness of member districts.
