A small investment by the state produces huge dividends for education.

Return on Investment

ESDs provide equity for all students, in all districts.

After more than four decades of service to schools in six Southwest Washington counties, ESD 112 remains focused on quality service. Together with the urban and rural districts we serve, we are able to leverage a small amount of state funding to build effective, cost efficient and innovative programs that help districts save money and leverage resources.

Washington’s ESDs are increasingly depended upon to provide essential services for school districts and communities, to help OSPI implement legislative education initiatives. Smaller districts often have fewer resources and rely heavily on ESDs to help provide essential services. However, the state’s larger school districts also take advantage of ESDs for cost efficiency, resource sharing, technical assistance and program implementation

ESD 112 Financial Snapshot

Core Funding

The nine ESDs received $5 million from the state in 2013 to cover state-mandated services, ESDs leveraged core funding into over $212 million of needed services for students, schools and families in Washington. Stable “Core Funding” ultimately generates revenue and educational services at no additional cost to the state.

Core funding constitutes just 2% of the ESD revenues statewide. For every $1 in core funding, ESDs returned $42 in educational programs and services—or $202 per every student in Washington! Without the small amount of core funding for ESDs, student services would decrease and costs to the state would increase.

Nine ESDs. One Network.

As one in a network of nine ESDs located geographically throughout the state, we provide state mandated services such as fiscal grant management, special education and transportation, personnel services such as certification and fingerprinting, curriculum services, inservice training and assessment, budget reviews, programs for juveniles, school boundary reviews (resolution of disputes), professional conduct investigations and a variety of other statutory obligations.
