Your Vision Is Our Mission
State Support Teams
The 16 State Support Teams are responsible for the regional delivery of school improvement, special education, early learning and school readiness, and parent and family involvement services to districts using a differentiated technical assistance structure of support based upon need. Sixteen educational service centers (ESC’s) were selected through an RFP process to act as Fiscal Agents.
The teams work through the Office for Exceptional Children, Office of Early Learning and School Readiness, and the Office of Improvement and Innovation by providing technical assistance and professional development.
Locations and contact information for Ohio’s 16 State Support Teams may be found here.
Ohio’s state support system includes 16 regional State Support Teams who use tools and knowledge to improve instructional practice and student outcomes by working with districts and buildings on improving systems they have in place. Our staff consists of Ohio educators who bring knowledge and experience to their work in systems change, special education, early learning and parent/family engagement. SST services are provided at no cost.
