The ESC Region 12 Technology Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization formed in 2012 as part of a vision to continually leverage resources and drive more money to students and teachers in the classroom, where it matters most. The focus of the Foundation is to help Region 12 schools with educational technology programs and place instructional technology into the hands of students.
