Welcome to CESA #11
I am excited to welcome you to our website. We are working very hard to make the site not only more user-friendly and more visually appealing, but also to develop a site that becomes your ‘go to’ place for information. We will continue to populate the site with information for everyone in your district, from professional development opportunities, to networking sessions to a repository of educational articles, research and data.
District Administrators will have a one-stop source for PAC information, data from requested surveys, presentations from CESA 11 workshops or presenters, and a collection of the work done on a variety of specific topics by the steering committee or our administrators as a whole.
Principals, teachers, directors, specialists, Head Start families and personnel, paraprofessionals, office staff, custodians, school board members and bus drivers will all find useful information to assist them in their everyday work. As we continue to work together to address the changes and challenges in accountability, educator effectiveness, instructional strategies, curriculum, special education, leadership, technology, and finances, we hope that CESA 11, and this website can be of service to you.
As we continue to build and expand this site, we welcome your thoughts and comments. Please feel free to share with us your experiences of navigating the site, and your requests for additional information that could be included. We are building this site for you, so please let us know how we can improve it for you.
Wishing you a great 2013-2014 school year. Thank you for all you do for children.

Our goal at CESA #11 is to provide these services by working together with our partners in a cooperative, cost-effective manner in order to maximize our collective investment. We provide services to children, teachers, administrators, school boards and schools in the form of both direct and indirect educational services. Direct services include providing onsite teachers, paraeducators, therapists, etc. Indirect services include leadership, consultation, staff development, resource materials, grant administration, and other assistance to better serve the students in our schools. Our high-quality staff development opportunities keep high-quality professionals on the cutting edge, resulting in higher performing students.
