The North Central Public School Study Council is an organization composed of 21 school corporations, three educational services cooperatives, and the Northern Indiana Educational Service Center. The Council presently services that region in northern Indiana which encompasses LaPorte, St. Joseph, Stark, Marshall, Kosciusko, Jasper, Pulaski, and Fulton counties.
