About Region 10 Educational Service Center

The schools in Region 10 are located in northeast Texas, including the city of Richardson, the site of the central office. Region 10 is the second-largest of the twenty Education Service Centers that the Texas State Legislature established in 1967. The region is comprised of eighty public school districts and thirty-five public charter schools across Kaufman, Rockwell, Hunt, Fannin, Grayson, Dallas, Collin, Ellis and a portion of Van Zandt counties.

The total student enrollment of Region 10 schools as of 2005 is 683,721, approximately 15% of the more than 4,500,000 students currently attending Texas public schools. This enrollment number includes nearly 4,000 pre-Kindergarten children who are participating in early education programs. As of the 2004-05 school year, the total faculty and staff of the school campuses numbered nearly 84,000, including more than 45,000 teachers.

Due to the large population of students and faculty, the staff at Region 10’s headquarters has the heavy responsibility of helping to make sure that every child and employee has the best possible experience in the public education system. Region 10 and other Education Service Centers are vital parts of the educational process in each public school in the state of Texas. The Region 10 Education Service Center partners with schools to help them provide an even better education for their students. Regional administrators provide training and resources to help the school districts implement improvement plans and make better use of their financial resources. An eight-member Board of Directors oversees the partnership between the Region 10 Educational Service Centers and the schools within its jurisdiction.

Teaching in Region 10

If you would like to teach in one of Region 10’s schools, a variety of positions are available in several different school districts. The opportunities are greatest for bilingual and special education teachers, positions for which many school districts offer a stipend to a teacher’s annual salary. Starting salaries vary by school district but typically range between $30,000 and $45,000 per year for first-year teachers with a bachelor’s degree. Although every school district is different, Region 10’s website contains information that can help teachers get started in their job searches. The website has links to various school districts and the information and profiles. It also provides a variety of teaching resources for current teachers and administrators.

Web-Centric Alternative Certification Program (WCACP)

If you would like to apply for one of the many available teaching positions in Region 10 schools, you must be certified or be enrolled in an alternative certification program in order to be qualified to be a classroom teacher. Because returning to school full-time can be challenging for working adults, the Web-Centric Alternative Certification Program (WCACP) provides online coursework that enables future teachers to complete the academic portion of the certification process from the comfort and convenience of home.

There are certain requirements that must be met before you can be hired full time for a one-year teaching internship during the 09/10 school year: See the following webpage for more information - Texas Teacher Certification
