Something Good is Happening in Our Schools

As part of its mission, the Greater Cleveland School Superintendents' Association features the accomplishments of a member's school district in its monthly newsletter under the heading, "Something Good Is Happening In Our Schools". This short article of approximately three hundred words highlights recent accomplishments of the school district and is shared with 273 school districts throughout the state.

Past Issues


Bob Mengerink, Superintendent,
Educational Service Center of Cuyahoga County

I hope you have had an opportunity to visit the new home of the ESC of Cuyahoga County. In December 2013, we moved to our new facility, Essex Place, in Independence and we are eager to share it with you. As educators, you are charged with one of the most important tasks imaginable—teaching and guiding new generations of students and their families into an unknown future that is full of opportunities. In light of this, we feel that you deserve to have access to well-designed spaces that encourage professional growth and district progress through meetings, workshops and other events in our first floor conference center. When you visit our staff on the third floor, our open concept was also created to make everyone feel welcome and engaged with our whole team to inspire creative solutions to meet any of your needs. We also continue to invest in partnerships with agencies, such as GCSSA and Ohio Schools Council, to share our space, increase access and promote collaborative support for districts. In addition, we have strategically planned the fiscal aspects of our transition so that our changes do not increase the costs of operating our facilities. More importantly, leasing our second floor space will offset all operating costs and generate additional revenue, allowing the ESC to invest even more resources into high-quality services to districts. If you have not yet had a chance to visit, we look forward to seeing you soon. And, as always, if you need any assistance or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of our ESC team.
