Experience, Expertise and Leadership in Education

    School Districts today face a challenging climate of changing federal and state requirements, funding issues, social pressures and societal problems that trickle into the classroom.  It’s MCESC’S intent to provide resources so that districts can skillfully navigate those challenges.

    MCESC currently serves 22 school districts and nearly 46,000 children in Mahoning, Columbiana, Portage and Trumbull Counties. Through shared services, we attempt to keep the costs of education low, while maximizing the benefits in curriculum services, professional development and special needs programs and services.
