The Ohio Educational Regional Service System
Ohio's State System of Support
House Bill 115 (126th General Assembly) was introduced by State Representative Arlene Setzer on March 8, 2005 to establish the Educational Regional Service System to support state and regional school improvement initiatives and promote a simplified approach to regional service delivery that was more coordinated than the existing system.
AM. Sub. H.B. 115 was signed into law by Governor Bob Taft on June 23, 2006. and became effective 90 days later on September 22, 2006. Several provisions contained within the measure were subsequently amended in Am. Sub. H.B. 79 (126th General Assembly).
OESCA created the guide ERSS Explained to assist its membership in understanding the legislative intent of the new system and the roles and responsibilities of each component part of the system.
