For over 100 years, school districts in Wisconsin counties were serviced by county superintendents. As school district reorganization developed and school districts became larger, the role of the county superintendent changed substantially. The 1963 Legislature and various school organizations studied the pattern of Wisconsin school organization and concluded that the county superintendency should be replaced with Cooperative Educational Service Agencies. This is where CESA7 comes in. It’s mission is to create a more cost-effective, collaborative, customer-driven organization to serve CESA 7 districts and the greater community as supported by the CESA 7 Board of Control.
