rose.brown.jpg     The Allen County ESC mourns the passing of Mr. Paul Brown, long-time ACESC Board Member.  Mr. Brown had been a tremendous supporter of education and an advocate for students in Allen County for decades.  His love for children, sound wise advice and council will be greatly missed.  Our deepest condolences are sent to the Brown family. 

From the Desk of Dr. Wittwer:

     Welcome to the Allen County Educational Service Center, where our mission is "to provide educational services and leadership through collaborative efforts." Through collaboration with our many partners, instruction/support is enhanced while costs are contained.  These partnerships with school districts provide high quality services to students from preschool age to young adulthood. We are committed to improving the lives of the young people with whom we work through service, professional development training and support, with leadership, and commitment to respond to changing educational needs. Our new vision (what we want to accomplish) is "serving today, preparing for tomorrow!"

      Please take a few minutes to review our website to learn more about the services and programs offered here at the ACESC.  We are extremely very proud of what we do for our students and are always interested in new and innovative ideas that will help us to better fulfill our goal of ensuring the success of every child.

      Feel free to contact us with any questions, thoughts, and inquiries at 419-222-1836 or e-mail: supt@allencountyesc.org.

     Thank you.
