  • and, helps students prepare for successful learning and employment opportunities. 

Businesses in Lake County wishing to become a member of the BAC are encouraged to reach out to the ESC of the Western Reserve.

Together we can make a direct impact on the career development of all youth.

It is the policy of the ESC of the Western Reserve that all ESC of the Western Reserve-sponsored public meetings and events are accessible to people with disabilities.  If you need assistance in participating in this meeting due to a disability as defined under the ADA, pease call the ESC of the Western Reserve's Superintendent at 440-350-2563.
