Mission Statement

The Mission of the Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center, as a sponsor of community schools, is to establish a strong public community school by adhering to quality authorizing practices and oversight of the school in accordance with the role of a quality sponsor, and to provide an opportunity to students who may not otherwise participate successfully in public education, in a student-centered manner that results in a high standard of education.


2017-2018 Sponsor Annual School Performance Report

Community school sponsors must monitor and evaluate the academic and fiscal performance; organization and operation; and legal compliance of each community school it sponsors.  During the 2017-2018 school year, Mid-Ohio ESC sponsored one community school, GOAL Digital Academy.  The sponsor is required to submit a written report of the evaluation results to the parents of students enrolled in the community school and to the Ohio Department of Education by November 30 of each year.  This is the link to the 2017-2018 Sponsor Annual School Performance Report for GOAL Digital Academy.
