Councillor Neil Poole, the authority's cabinet member for policy and resources, said: "The council wants to become more commercial and sell its quality services to schools, not just in North Lincolnshire but also on a more regional scale.
"Our services not only aim to give value – they add value, as the council, unlike other providers, has a stake in the area's young people as the shapers of our shared future.
"We offer a variety of excellent services, increased resilience and service capacity that schools and academies can benefit from."
Mr Poole was unable to say how much income the council hoped to generate from selling services to schools.
