The Bridge To
 The Jefferson County Educational Service Center (JCESC) was one of 88 county school districts established in 1914 by the Ohio General Assembly.  County school districts were charged with responsibility for elevating the state’s system of education to a proper standard, and the work of county staff was primarily regulatory and compliance-driven.  Staff developed courses of study, provided teacher inservice training, and supervised classrooms.  In 1995, county school districts were renamed educational service centers, a title that appropriately describes a shift in focus from compliance to service and reflects the current work of ESCs.

Quest for Success offering Virtual Online Tutoring
STEUBENVILLE-The Quest For Success program has a new offering to help students keep their grades in check with virtual online tutoring.    Students in grades 5-8 who attend Jefferson County schools may take part in the latest iteration of the program which kicks off for a fifth year on Oct. 18. The before-and-after-school program has held activities at the Quest Center located at 2250 Cherry Ave. in Steubenville and partners with Coleman Professional Services and Franciscan University with the goal of increasing opportunities for student success in literacy, mathematics, social development, family support and community involvement. Tutoring will be available on Monday to Thursday from 7:30-8:30 a.m. and 1-5 p.m. Students will utilize the Google Meet link and work with Quest For Success staff and education students from Franciscan.    “The program will be the Quest for Success Homework Help with math and literacy using IXL [curriculum for personalized learning],” said JCESC Administrative Assistant Mark Masloski, who serves as program manager. “This is the second year and students are able to log into a Google Meet to have tutoring sessions. They can work on homework they need assistance with as well as intervention.”    IXL combines a comprehensive K-12 curriculum, real-time diagnostics, personalized guidance and actionable analytics to personalize instruction and help student progress faster.

Quest for Success is made possible through a five-year, $850,000 grant through the Ohio Department of Education which provides $200,000 annually for the first three years, with $150,000 during year four and $100,000 the final year.
