In 1965, the Wisconsin legislature recognized the need for a service unit between the school district and the state superintendent. CESA 10 is one of 12 in Wisconsin and provides services to 29 member school districts in northwest Wisconsin. The specific services provided to each district vary depending on the district’s needs. Services are offered on a cooperative basis and therefore cost effective for member districts. CESA 10 has traditionally offered services in three general areas: special education, instructional services, and instructional technology. In recent years, due to needs of our member school districts, services have expanded to include administrative software support for school business officials and facilities management services.
