Summit County Education Service Center

The Summit Educational Service Center (SESC) was first established as the Summit County Board of Education in 1914 when Ohio’s 80th General Assembly sanctioned the founding of a county board of education for each of the 88 counties in Ohio. The primary aim of a county office was to provide administrative management and leadership to local school districts, the majority of which were small.
