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 Readiness and The Student Readiness Collaborative as well as a pipeline to over 16,000 talented students. For educators, we strive to improve instruction, curriculum, and performance by helping teachers and staff meet district KPI 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.
