Departments & Services

The Ohio Valley Educational Service Center provides a wide range of programs and initiatives to empower our educators, administration, families, and community. We ensure that programs for educational advancement are plentiful, and tailored to the needs of the community we serve. For businesses, we provide Workforce Development as well as a pipeline to over 10,000 talented students. For educators, we strive to improve instruction, curriculum, and performance by helping teachers and staff meet district goals, cut costs, source speakers, and improve processes. And for communities, we provide knowledge about what programs and opportunities are available to residents of all ages.
