ESD 101 mission statement:
Educational Service District 101 promotes educational excellence by delivering essential, cooperative services to schools and other learning communities.
It shall be the intent and purpose of this chapter to establish educational service districts as regional agencies which are intended to:
1. Provide cooperative and informational services to local school districts;
2. Assist the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the State Board of Education in the performance of their respective statutory or constitutional duties; and
3. Provide services to school districts and to the school for the deaf and the school for the blind to assure equal educational opportunities.
There are nine ESDs in
Washington, each serving a
specific geographic region
of the state.
ESD 101 provides cooperative services to 59 public school districts and 45 state-approved private schools in seven counties of Eastern Washington – Adams, Ferry, Lincoln, Pend Oreille, Spokane, Stevens and Whitman.
ESD 101 is the state’s largest ESD in the number of districts served, counties served and geographic region served (13,998 square miles). All told, the region counts more than 96,000 K-12 students and 257 individual schools buildings.

History of ESDs
Washington’s nine ESDs have evolved from a system which began as 39 individual county offices of education. A series of consolidations and name changes between 1969-77 ultimately yielded a statewide system of nine regional ESDs. Subsequent legislative studies in 1982 and 1995 commended the ESDs for providing affordable, high-quality service to schools.
Educational Service District 101 is a publicly funded organization
