The Educational Support Services Division (ESS) works in collaboration with the 14 school districts in Butte County to meet two important goals: to improve student academic achievement in reading, writing and mathematics; and to provide safe and healthy learning environments for children and youth. ESS focuses on meeting the Butte County Office of Education's goal: "Committed to the success of every student and the excellence of every educator."
ESS is responsible for tracking national and statewide education policy decisions that affect curriculum, instruction, health and safety, data, assessment, accountability, technology, early childhood, and after school programs then providing technical assistance and professional development to inform and assist educators.
ESS offers direct assistance over a sustained period of time to those schools facing the greatest challenges; develops programs in response to grant opportunities; establishes forums to foster communication and share information; delivers online and face-to-face professional development; provides online, print and audiovisual learning resources; disseminates timely information about current education issues; operates schools for young children; conducts after school programs; and offers technical assistance and professional development throughout Northern California to support technology, after school programs, reading instruction, and district improvement.
ESS is comprised of approximately 400 management, early childhood, clerical, and after school employees.
The guiding purpose is to prepare students to succeed in their careers and higher education and to participate fully as citizens in our society. ESS is committed to joining with the local school district to utilize every resource available in the collaborative effort to provide the best possible education for the young people in our county.
