Butler County Educational Service Center Named High-Performing ESC for Fifth Consecutive Year

Butler County Educational Service Center (BCESC) was recently named a “High-Performing ESC” by the Ohio Department of Education. BCESC has made the list each year since the award was first introduced in 2016.

To earn the recognition, Butler County ESC demonstrated a savings of nearly 58 percent or $4,291,655 for its 10 client districts in the areas of physical/occupational therapy and school psychologist services, the Butler County Success program, and Help Me Grow Early Intervention.

BCESC ranks fifth highest among Ohio’s 52 educational service centers in terms of total amount saved. In total, Ohio’s ESCs reported more than $78 million in savings to ODE for FY2021.

“Receiving this designation from ODE demonstrates the value our shared services provide not only to our partner school districts, but also to the residents of their respective communities,” said BCESC Superintendent Chris Brown. “The relationships we foster allow us to remain competitive in this space and respond quickly to the changing needs of Butler County schools, teachers, students and families.”
