As the situation remains fluid in the coming weeks, our intent is to find ways to assist area schools so students gain as much knowledge as possible during the remainder of the school year, and to help get students ready for next fall. What that looks like is still a work in progress, and will be different for each school.

Proudly Serving Children

Serving school districts in Cedar, Dakota, Dixon, Knox, Thurston and Wayne counties in northeast Nebraska.

Educational Service Unit #1 is headquartered in Wakefield and provides a wide range of services to 22 school districts, including professional development, digital learning and internet services, and student support for individuals with special needs.

Educational Service Units were created by the Nebraska Unicameral in 1965. The purpose of the ESU is to provide services that individual school districts cannot economically or efficiently provide for themselves.

ESU #1 will model excellence by helping schools increase educators effectiveness and student learning as a result of expert services.
