The State Support Teams were created by the Ohio Department of Education as a result of H.B. 115. Sixteen (16) regions were established with a State Support Team (SST) in each region. Each SST has a fiscal agent who signed a Performance Agreement with the Ohio Department of Education. The fiscal agent for the SST Region 7 is the North Central Ohio Educational Service Center (NCOESC). The SST Region 7 has a supervisory function that oversees the following functions that conduct the work of the SST:
- School Improvement
- Early Learning and School Readiness
- Exceptional Children
By increasing the growth and achievement of ALL students, productive and meaningful lives are formed, resulting in a better society today, and in the future.
Through collaboration, provide intentional leadership to districts, staff, families, and community members in order to find and meet the needs of ALL students.
