Message from our Superintendent, Jennifer Felker: 

February 13, 2023 

Dear ESC of the Western Reserve (ESCWR) Staff and Schools, 

It brings me great joy to welcome Spring to our staff, school districts, and our community partners! We are committed to the success of our school districts and our services to them. Throughout our member districts, you will find passionate educators working each day to help ensure excellence. With equitable outcomes for all of our students, while showing them care and compassion, and empowering them to achieve their best and full potential. 

At the ESCWR, and for me, as the Superintendent, I feel that learning and interactions between teachers and students play an important role in how our staff educates our students. We are excited to be in a position to help guide and serve our school districts. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity. 

Thank you, ESC of the Western Reserve Staff for your hard work and dedication to the students, families, and schools you support in Geauga and Lake counties and beyond. 

Happy Spring!

Best Always,


Jennifer Felker
