Northern Indiana Educational Services Center (NIESC) is one of nine Educational Service Center's (ESC) in the state of Indiana. Each ESC serves a region of Indiana and through cooperative efforts offers services and products throughout the state.
NIESC is dedicated to support our member school corporations, their staff, and students through innovation and service.
Our webpage serves as a link to all of our products and services to assist member school districts as they work to meet the needs of their staff, students and community. We encourage you to explore our website to expand your knowledge on different areas where we can be of service to you. For announcements and current events check out our Event Registration Site.
We are constantly working to improve and to perform this effectively, we ask for your ideas and concerns.
Are you in need of specialized training to renew your teaching license? We offer wide range of professional development opportunities throughout the school year. Topics are determined from the results of an extensive survey sent to every district and building administrator, and any teacher attending a recent workshop.
Our Cooperative Purchasing Program has the potential to save your corporation thousands of dollars each year. It will make a positive difference in your building level supply account. We help you stretch those classroom supply dollars. As a member, you are eligible to purchase from several statewide bids and Market Basket items through the K12-Indiana/Spendbridge Procurement site. Our purchasing department can also save money on cafeteria food and supplies, bread and dairy items, waste removal and fire safety protection.
We have responded to the cycle of changes made to the National School Lunch Program by providing our members the opportunity to contract with our own registered dietician. The registered dietician assists with the current requirements for food service personnel in continuing their professional development. Our dietican can guide your school corporation through the certification process, setting up menus to meet the current guidelines and provide sanitation training.
