Did you know...

Currently, there are 19 Education Service Districts (ESDs) serving Oregon’s 36 counties.
ESDs assist school districts and the State of Oregon in achieving Oregon's education goals by providing equitable educational opportunities for all of Oregon’s public school students.
Each ESD provides regional services to its component school districts, primarily in areas that the school districts alone would not be able to adequately and equitably provide. 
Services are offered within four large categories: special needs children, school improvement, technology, and administrative services. 
The purpose of Oregon’s Education Service Districts (ESDs) is defined in Oregon law (Oregon Revised Statute ORS 334.005).
