CESA #1 | Diversity Employer


Cooperative Educational Service Agencies (CESAs) were created by the Wisconsin legislature more than 50 years ago to serve as a link between school districts and between school districts and the state. There are twelve CESAs across the state. 

Located in Southeastern Wisconsin, CESA #1 is governed by an 11 member Board of Control, comprised of elected school board members from the six county region. In addition, the Agency receives guidance from its Professional Advisory Committee, which is open to the superintendents from all 45 member districts.

The region served by CESA #1 is unique. It is home to both the largest and smallest districts in the state, as well as some of the most advantaged and disadvantaged students. It contains urban, suburban and rural districts, and some districts have broad diversity, while others do not. These differences require a philosophy and a team that are highly connected to the varying needs and people of the region, while keeping students and educators at the forefront of everything that the Agency does.

Our Vision

To be a regional catalyst that enables our clients to create their future by taking action now.

Our Mission

To provide high quality, cost effective programs and services that are responsive to the dynamic needs of our members, clients, and the students they serve.
