About the Summit ESC
First located in downtown 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 SESC with the ability to arrange more workshops and provide meeting space for districts.
With the 1995 legislation change, we were renamed as the Summit County Educational Service Center.
In 2016, our organization changed its name to the Summit Educational Service Center. This change was made for two reasons. One was to simplify our name and alleviate confusion with being incorrectly associated with the government of the County of Summit. The second reason of the name change was to reflect that we provide services to schools throughout the state, and not only those located within Summit County.
SESC staff is 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.
