Hamilton County ESC 2020
Renovation and Construction

If you have been in and around our main offices on Hamilton Avenue, you may have noticed a few changes. We are excited to have begun the renovation and construction of an updated and expanded facility that will have increased capacity and capabilities. 

Hamilton County ESC’s current facility built circa 1976.

The current facility, constructed over forty years ago in 1976, was built to serve six local school districts. Today we support over 80 public and non-public schools, organizations, and government entities with professional development, area-wide meetings, and state-mandated training.

Our renovation and construction are a reinvestment of resources for the benefit of the schools and communities we serve. Building is scheduled to be completed in the Fall of 2020.

Hamilton County ESC is a not-for-profit entity as outlined in Ohio Revised Code 3311.055. We provide support to educational entities, non-profits, and other government agencies in instruction, administration, personnel, and finance.
