The Ohio Educational Service Center Association (OESCA) and the ESC Network Regional Coordinators present Let's Connect, a new conference designed for Educational Service Center (ESC) staff members who serve as the "boots on the ground," working directly with districts. 

All ESC departments are represented with full tracks of breakout sessions focused on Curriculum and Instruction, Integrated Student Supports, Tech Integration, Special Services, Data Assessment, and Equity.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Peter DeWitt, educator, author and leadership coach

Let's Connect provides practical learning, takeaway tools and resources, and regional and statewide networking opportunities to help support those who work directly with school districts to improve outcomes for every child.
