Bilingual/ESL/Title III Services

Region 6 Education Service Center (Region 6) is one of 20 regional education service centers established by the Texas Legislature in 1967.  More than fifty years ago, the Texas Legislature demonstrated its commitment to excellence in education by establishing regional education service centers with the purpose of helping school districts and charter schools to improve student performance, operate more efficiently, and implement state initiatives. Regional education service centers are nonregulatory, intermediate education units. Texas Education Code, Chapter 8, gives each school district the opportunity to voluntarily be served by and participate with a regional education service center. Region 6 currently serves a fifteen-county area comprised of 56 public school districts and 9 open-enrollment charter schools, representing more than two hundred thousand students, twenty-eight thousand educators and staff.

Region 6 focuses on service to, and support of, educators in helping students succeed. This is at the heart of everything that we do. Every service we provide was developed at the request of schools and we pride ourselves on being responsive to the needs of educators and the communities that they serve. 

VISION:

Dedicated to serve.

MISSION:

The mission of Region 6 ESC is to empower the educational community to achieve excellence.
