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.

Parker is Administrator of the Year
Ken Parker, principal at Harrison Central, was named 2021 Administrator of the Year during the Principals’ Leadership Collaborative meeting on Sept. 9 at the Jefferson County Educational Service Center’s R. Larry George Training Annex. Parker received a plaque and $700 to be used at his grade PK-12 school. JCESC Director of Curriculum and Professional Development Ron Sismondo said the governing board recognizes an outstanding school leader each year who has succeeded in providing high-quality learning opportunities for students, and Parker definitely fits that description. The principal was lauded for his exemplary contributions to his profession in the areas of leadership, curriculum, instruction and assessment, school environment and personal excellence. The Administrator of the Year honor has been given since 2018 with Buckeye Local and Harrison Hills City Schools each yielding two recipients. Pictured are, from left, Parker with Sismondo.
