We are the League of Communicators.
ESD 112 maintains the largest school communications program of the nine educational service districts in the state. School districts are our specialty and we’ve been serving them for 50 years. Although our scope of services has grown dramatically through the years based on client demand, we still believe in the power of personalized services tailored to the unique needs of every district.
Each member of our award-winning school communication services team has a communications degree, plus extensive knowledge and expertise in the field. We’ve built an expansive menu of affordable communications products and services.
Most importantly, our staff maintains broad knowledge of, and sensitivity to, the issues and challenges for educators in the state.

Who We Serve
Who We Serve
Educational agencies across the nation can call upon the League for any communications challenge, and when the need has passed, League members move on to the next educator in need. Our hourly rate is more competitive than a typical ad agency, and we specialize in education, so the communications are always on target. No job is too big or too small!
The majority of our contract clients are mid-sized school districts in the Southwest Washington region. These districts each have unique communications needs, but they all share the desire to communicate with their communities regularly and professionally. Our contract services are carefully tailored to each district, and needs that exceed the contract easily transition to the fee-for-service model.
