BCESC Unveils Core Values, Guiding Principles

blogThe Butler County Educational Service Center (BCESC) unveiled new core values and guiding principles that will lead the BCESC in its planning, activities, and initiatives. A part of the BCESC Strategic Plan, these values and principles will promote the BCESC’s vision to be a progressive, visionary, premier, inclusive organization that supports world-class learning through leadership and collaboration.


“Since last year, the BCESC directors met monthly to work on a strategic plan and set goals to help articulate priorities and stay true to the BCESC identity we are proud of and know to be true. As anyone who has experienced our services and programs, they know our four core values--Family-Focused, Respect, Compassion, Integrity--to be the essence of our mission to provide exemplary services and programs to students and families that improve learning so children can lead successful lives,’” said Chris Brown, BCESC Superintendent.


The inception of the strategic planning began nearly two years ago under the direction of the former BCESC superintendent Jon Graft. Last summer, Chris Brown took the head job and he followed Graft’s plans to carry out the strategic planning meetings.


“Every service and every program--from home visits and preschool to curriculum design and coaching--are reflections of the Butler County Educational Service Center. A revitalized strategic plan gives BCESC the opportunity to keep moving forward and share our innovative ideas with our partners and the greater Cincinnati area,” said Chris Brown, BCESC Superintendent.


The BCESC program leaders and supervisors will tell you how important it was for the ESC to “get it right” the first time, which is why they thoughtfully cultivated the guiding principles and surveyed every 550+ BCESC employees and reached out to key stakeholders such as parents, staff, and local businesses.


“Every time we hire a new employee or register an eager three-year-old for preschool, I want the person or family to know they are coming to a place that truly values them and wants them to succeed. I know the BCESC Guiding Principles and Core Values truly articulate our mission and vision in a clear, concise manner, which is why we’ve taken our time developing these guidelines,” said Suzanne Prescott, BCESC Early Childhood Programs Director.


The Plan identifies four core values (Family-Focused, Respect, Compassion, Integrity) and six guiding principles (below):blog

  1. Innovative Programs and Services: The BCESC will be a forward-thinking organization; providing creative solutions for present and future needs of our partners.

  2. Quality Service to Others: The BCESC will engage with each of our partners to provide customized comprehensive services, creating healthy partnerships with clients, families, and employees.

  3. Responsiveness to Customer and Employee Needs: The BCESC will demonstrate fiscal responsibility to provide the organization with the financial resources to maintain and support current programs for future growth.

  4. Financial Stability: The BCESC will demonstrate fiscal responsibility to provide the organization with the financial resources to maintain and support current programs for future growth.

  5. Visionary Leadership: The BCESC will develop the leadership capacity of the entire organization to build a shared vision of the future.

  6. Organizational Continuous Improvement: The BCESC will utilize data to improve programs, services, and processes within the organization.
