About US

The Greene County Educational Service Center (GCESC) is proud to serve the public school districts in Greene County, Ohio. The GCESC offers an array of programs and services including but not limited to Prevention Programming, Special Programs/Activities, Pupil Personnel and Administrative Support, School Improvement and Instructional Support, Staff Development, and Special Education Services and Programs. Some of our specific services include Speech/Language, Physical, Occupational Therapies, Adaptive Physical Education; Alternative School and Behavior Intervention for At-Risk Students; Mental Health Support Services, Vision & Hearing Intervention as well as Audiology Services, and Early Childhood Development/Preschool Programs. GCESC serves the school districts of Beavercreek City, Cedar Cliff Local, Fairborn City, Greeneview Local, Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Local, Xenia Community, and Yellow Springs Exempted Village, as well as the Greene County Career Center.

Located in the southwest part of the state, Greene County encompasses about 420 square miles in area, with a population of approximately 165,000. The county is home to seven public school districts, and a county-wide vocational training & career center, plus an array of colleges and universities.

The Greene County area is primarily suburban, with more densely populated concentrations to the west of the county around the communities of Xenia, Beavercreek, and Fairborn, which are in closer proximity to Dayton-- the closest major city in the region. Communities to the east of the county, including Cedarville, Jamestown, and Yellow Springs are more sparsely populated, and are more rural in nature. Bellbrook is the furthest south and borders Warren County.

Major employers in the county include Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Wright State University, the public school districts, and other companies and organizations. Wildlife and recreational resources are found throughout the county, including Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve, John Bryan State Park, Spring Valley Wildlife Area, the Little Miami National Scenic River, and Caesar Creek Lake. Each community in Greene has its own flavor and fun things to do – exploring each is an adventure!

The GCESC serves the school districts of Beavercreek City, Cedar Cliff Local, Fairborn City, Greeneview Local, Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Local, Xenia Community, and Yellow Springs Exempted Village as well as the Greene County Career Center.

Our GCESC main offices are housed in the Arthur Morgan Building located at 360 E. Enon Rd. in Yellow Springs. Originally built in 1968 by the Yellow Springs Exempted Village Schools, the building was renovated in 1989 when GCESC took occupancy. GCESC purchased the Morgan Building from Yellow Springs Schools in 2002.

Several programs utilize other facilities throughout the county. Many programs are housed in various school districts within Greene County, or involve cooperative arrangements with other entities. For example, our Alternative School program is housed at the former Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Board office in Bellbrook, an Early Childhood Pre-school program utilizes the Friends Care Nursing Home in Yellow Springs, and the Outdoor Advantage, also located in Bellbrook, houses a program for at-risk students using outdoor education as the foundation.
