Coordination of Instructional Services by Washington State’s Educational Service Districts


This REL Northwest study looked at the funding, delivery, and coordination of instructional services offered by Washington state's network of nine Educational Service Districts (ESDs). REL Northwest examined 10 statewide teaching and learning support areas, including the percentages of districts served, the funding for each service, and ESD perceptions of coordination of services. The study showed that while the network believes it's desirable to coordinate their services, the structures needed to do that aren't always in place. The findings can help inform similar education service agencies around the country, which provide services to 79 percent of public schools.
