A Year In Review  

July 21, 2014
As the 2013-14 school year is winding to a close, I have been reflecting on all that has transpired over the course of the year. This school year has been a whirlwind of working with administrators and teachers on school sites across our service unit, as well as here at ESU 10. As my work has taken me across the ESU 10’s 10,000 square miles and beyond, it has been exciting to directly see the impact of ESU 10 on the 30,000 students in our service unit. I have had many opportunities to learn and grow in my knowledge and skills as I strive to better serve the students, teachers, staff, and administrators in ESU 10.

As I have reflected on the school year, I have compiled data from ESU 10’s Odie travel request and workshop registration systems in order to get a clearer picture of the ways in which ESU 10 has served each of our 34 school districts. From July 1, 2013 to April 30, 2014, ESU 10 staff members have made 511 visits to school sites, and 3,252 people have registered for workshops held here at ESU 10. The chart below breaks down these totals by school. During this time period, the public schools in our area relied on ESU 10’s services more frequently than the private schools, though all schools in our service unit utilized either the workshops offered here at ESU 10, had an ESU 10 staff member come to their site, or both. Through ESU 10’s Continuous Improvement Process, data such as what is represented on the chart below can help guide our conversations about what we can do to better serve all ESU 10 schools.
