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.

How can pride in a school district be measured? One way is the manner in which tax payer dollars are used to implement forward thinking that is designed to improve student learning. Logan Elm School District's decision to purchase Chromebooks for all of the district's students is one such example. This week's article discusses that decision as well as shares the personal experiences PCESC Superintendent Ty Ankrom had while working in Logan Elm schools as a young principal.
