Southwest Education Support Service Center was constructed in the year 2004 just south of Caruthers, CA. The service center is home to Southwest Transportation Agency J.P.A. and South County Support Service J.P.A.; formed by our 5 member districts, Alvina, Caruthers, Laton, Monroe, and Riverdale School Districts. We are a non-profit agency which provides various services to school districts at reduced costs sometimes saving our districts hundreds of thousands of dollars. Although we are owned by 5 districts, we service over 13 of the south valley's educational institutions. We are governed by the California Department of Education and are classified as a K-12 education institution.
