From the Superintendent

Welcome to the East Central Ohio Educational Service Center (ECOESC) website. This website was created to offer an easy-to-use tool for area educators to access workshop opportunities, collaborative educational projects, special events, and ECOESC news. We now service all twenty-one school districts in Tuscarawas, Carroll, Harrison, and Belmont Counties in Ohio. In addition, we have added a number of school districts in contiguous counties to our service region. So, if you teach in or near this county, you are eligible to take advantage of our services.

Please plan to visit this website on a regular basis to learn more about educational events in this county. You can also click on various links for additional information and /or to email ECOESC staff.

As superintendent I want to stress that your ECOESC is here to serve you, the educators of Tuscarawas, Carroll, Harrison and Belmont counties. That is our mission and we take it seriously.

We hope that you take advantage of our website and look forward to any input you might have to help us make it better. To get in touch with us, contact our Webmaster. Thank you.

Best Wishes in Education,

Randy Lucas, Superintendent
