The Summit County ESC

About the Summit County ESC:

First located at 482 Grant Street in Akron, the Summit County Board of Education relocated in August, 1992, to its present location at 420 Washington Avenue in Cuyahoga Falls. This move nearly tripled the amount of available floor space and provided SCESC with the ability to arrange more workshops and provide meeting space for districts.

SCESC staff are dedicated to providing leadership in the areas of staff development, in-service, technological developments, student development, curriculum and instruction development, current educational processes, legal developments, and fiscal developments.
