ESD 112 board of directors are strong education advocates in our community.
About the Board
Under law, ESDs are governed by a board of directors consisting of seven citizens who are elected by the school board members in the region’s 30 public school districts. The board members represent geographic director districts based on U.S. Census data. The ESD board is responsible for policy and governance of ESD 112 and for providing direction to the superintendent who is advised by local school district superintendents.
Accountability is exceptionally strong at ESD 112. As authorized by statute, ESDs are directed to be as responsive to local educational needs as possible.
