County Board of Education (ESC) Celebrates 100 Years
In February, 1914, the Ohio General Assembly established County Boards of Education. County Boards were charged with "elevating the state's system of education to a proper standard."  Today, again through an act of legislation, County Boards are known as Educational Service Centers. The Pickaway County ESC continues to fulfill the original charge, growing and evolving to meet the needs of the districts it serves.

The Pickaway County Historical Society's Spring 2014 edition of the Quarterly features the Pickaway County ESC. 
 
Here's What I Think.....
This is a weekly column by PCESC Superintendent Ty Ankrom. How the work and the staff of PCESC impact the community and school districts of Pickaway County will be the focus of this column.

"I touch the future. I teach." This quote, attributed to educator-astronaut Christa McAuliffe, is personified by retired Westfall teacher Rick Metzger. Rick was recently awarded the Ohio Educational Service Center Association's Lifetime Achievement Award. PCESC wishes to extend its appreciation for the difference Rick has made in the lives of his students.
