The Allen County ESC has again received the High Performing ESC designation from the Ohio Department of Education. A High Performing ESC has generated total cost savings of at least 5% for its school district for primary services secured from an ESC instead of another source. Ohio's Educational Service Centers (ESCs) provide schools and school districts with professional development, technology, support, planning, and administrative services that help improve student learning, enhance the quality of instruction, expand access to resources, and maximize operating/fiscal efficiencies.

How Did the Students in Dawn Foland's Pathway to Success Program Do it?Students cut the bottom off of water bottles, then they painted the inside of the bottles. When the paint dried, they cut the bottles to make them spiral. The teacher took embroidery thread and wrapped a wooden embroidery hoop. They placed each cut bottle on the hoop with embroidery thread. They measured how long the thread needed to be for each color. The last bottles they put on were the blue bottles on the outside of the sculpture. Each color hangs a little lower and has fewer of that color. The sculpture is 7' long.
