You can search by name, location, or identification number to find identification information about schools, programs, school districts, ESDs, and other educational institutions.

Institution Request Form (updated 3/8/2022)

This form is specifically for district and school requests. It is used for both directory updates (such as staff changes) and major district or school updates (such as changing a grade range, adding a school, closing a school, or changing the name of a school). Directory updates can be submitted at any time in the year but major changes must be in to ODE by SEPTEMBER 15 for changes to be effective that year. Failure to submit your institution changes in a timely manner can impact reports and your institution’s ability to submit data. If you want to submit a change to your school or district’s information, you can complete the form above and send the changes to the ODE Institutions Database Maintenance Team.

Requests for 2023-24 will not be processed until after March 1, 2023.

Non District Changes

The Institutions Database is used for all entities doing business with ODE in some capacity, including non-standard public schools (eg: private schools, preschools, nutrition programs, etc.). Use the appropriate online form below to make institution requests based on your specific needs. Requests may be for new institutions or for changes to current institutions. For changes to current institutions, you will need to know your current institution ID which you can find on the Institution Lookup Tool. If you do not know what you need to request, please work with your contact at ODE.


Oregon School Directory

The Oregon School Directory is an online directory listing phone numbers, addresses, and key staff people in all public schools and districts in the state. It further contains information on Oregon Department of Education staff, additional information about private schools, and statistics on the number and composition of Oregon schools.

If your institution would like to do business with ODE, you must apply for an institution identification number. Please save the document to your own system, fill out the form, and email it to the ODE Institutions Database Maintenance Team. We will contact you about your request. You may also use this form to update your existing institution’s information or to close your institution. Institution requests (new/changes) must be accompanied by school board minutes authorizing the new institution or change.
