I would like to welcome you to the Midwest Regional Educational Service Center (MRESC) website and thank you for your interest. Please feel free to browse our webpage and related websites. This website has been designed to give you a broad overview of our organization.
The ESC is the result of a merger of the Shelby, Logan, and Hardin County Offices. The Midwest Regional Educational Service Center consists of seven major departments that work with local districts to focus the direction of the entire organization.
• Curriculum & School Improvement
• Early Childhood Services
• Special Education Services
• Alternative Education
• Virtual Learning
• Fiscal Services
• Organizational Development
Strong Relationships Put Students, Parents, & Educators First
MRESC works closely with eighteen K-12 districts, two career centers, and two community colleges. MRESC also has long-standing mutual relationships with ESCs in Region 6 and throughout Ohio. These relationships have been essential to the delivery of innovative and cost effective services.
To support student opportunities in higher education, MRESC maintains close partnerships with Edison State Community College, Clark State Community College, Rhodes State Community College, Bowling Green State University, University of Dayton, and many other colleges and career centers. The MRESC also coordinates its services with regional health and human service agencies, city, township and county government, chambers of commerce, as well as other business groups and corporations.
We're Here for You
The administrative offices for the MRESC are centrally located in Bellefontaine, Ohio and maintains a satellite office in Sidney, Ohio. From these offices more than 225 committed employees serve our member districts in Shelby, Logan, and Hardin Counties. Our annual budget of approximately $15 million is funded by state appropriations, fee for service programs, special projects, and grants.
In addition to managing much of the educational services within our three county region, MRESC operates the Opportunity School and SEED program at Sidney City Schools, and the virtual learning lab in Logan County.
