Arizona East Central Regional Service Centers

The East Central Regional Service Center was formed by the elected County School Superintendents as part of a statewide movement toward a shared services model.

Arizona East Central Regional Service Centers

This organization has recognized the need for a robust resource to provide professional development opportunities to educators in Southern Arizona schools.  Often smaller schools and school districts do not have the resources to hire quality professional developers and so suffer from an inability to secure much needed information, skills and leadership.  The SAREC organization has been formed to help meet this need.

The East Central Region combines Pinal, Gila, Graham and Greenlee counties to mutually provide services to Local Education Service Agencies throughout the region.  Arizona is divided into five (5) Regional Service Centers, specifically to create a voluntary approach to implementing strategic statewide initiatives. Each region received a significant grant from Governor Jan Brewer to host County Symposiums which discussed AZ Ready, state educational mandates, encouraged participation in designing the process and procedures to be used, and identifying the most critical topics that each county should address.
