School Success Equals Student Success

Our Services

We offer the following assistance in school improvement

In collaboration with the Office of Student and School Success, the ESD will implement Student and School Success Regional Improvement Networks (RINs) focused on ensuring aligned support around Transformational Teaching for Learning and Courageous Leadership in identified Priority and Focus schools and their districts.

The Title 1/LAP Network meets quarterly to bring together Title 1 and LAP directors from our districts with our liaison from OSPI.

This group meets to:

  • share ideas that help all of the districts meet the needs of eligible students and their families,
  • solve problems so that each district consistently meets the federal and state requirements of the programs,
  • learn about the most current information relating to our programs and how to apply that information as we write applications and reports and design programs that effectively and efficiently use the federal and state funds.
