In Washington state there are nine educational support agencies known as Education Service Districts (ESDs) that partner with the Superintendent of Public Instruction to provide a network dedicated to making Washington state a better place to learn and live for all students. Clallam County schools work with OESD 114 to provide key services and unique supports through special education services. These services create enhanced educational opportunities for all students improving individual student success and achievement. This is particularly relevant for students with special needs, program organizers say.
