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.
