We are one of 20 regional service centers established by the Texas State Legislature in 1967 for the purpose of providing services to the schools within a defined geographic region. We are non-regulatory, have no taxing authority, and provide services for which local school participation is voluntary. Region 10 Education Service Center, located in Richardson, provides services that impact more than 810,000 students on 1,220 campuses. Among the 99,000 staffers we support are 53,000 teachers in over 120 ISDs, charters and private school across eight north Texas counties and portions of a ninth. Schools outside the geographic region may also contract with us.
