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 a wide range of professional development opportunities throughout the school year. Topics are determined based on the results of an extensive annual survey sent to all district and building administrators and any teacher having attend a workshop recently.
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 by helping you stretch those classroom supply dollars. As a member, you are eligible to purchase from several statewide bids and Educational Service Center Bids through the K12-Indiana/Spendbridge Procurement site. Our purchasing department can also help save money on cafeteria food and supplies, bread and dairy items, and waste removal/recycling. Contact Lisa Abell for more information.
We have responded to the number of changes being made to the National School Lunch Program by providing our members the opportunity to contract with our own registered dietitian. The registered dietitian assists with the current requirements for food service personnel to continue their professional development. Our dietitan can guide your school corporation through the certification process, setting up menus to meet the current guidelines, and provide sanitation training.
