Qualitative Data Evidence of Adding Value to Shelton Public Schools
The value of ESU's in Nebraska is indispensable for schools. Their ability to pool educational resources, staff, and services at a very reasonable cost to small districts can't be emphasized enough. Smaller district can't match the quality or quantity (part time FTEs) of the services that we need to operate. It would be virtually impossible for a district to staff a 1.33 FTE speech or occupational therapy position on our own. But with the ESU's help of pooling those needs with other districts, we're able to provide those services for the students of our district. Other services like technology, tech support, PowerSchool support, Erate, and school improvement are just a small sampling of the vital role ESU's play in our daily lives. Districts would see a significant cost increase if we had those services either contracted out or hire additional staff to provide them for our kids. Needless to say, ESU's provide the needed support and services for us at a very reasonable and reduced cost.
