About Us

Welcome to the Douglas Education Service District!

The role of the Douglas Education Service District is to provide services to administrators, teachers, staff and students in our 13 local component school districts. Our mission is to add value to public education so that cooperation among the districts and the ESD results in higher quality, less expensive and more diversified services.

Education in Douglas County covers a remarkable 5,071 square miles, with rural locales like Camas Valley, Days Creek, and small-town schools like Elkton, North Douglas, Riddle, Glendale, Oakland and Yoncalla.  In the county’s center are mid-sized school districts South Umpqua, Winston-Dillard, Glide, Roseburg and Sutherlin.

​Douglas ESD administers a number of grants and programs to serve children in Douglas County schools and beyond. Some Douglas ESD programs, such as Regional Services for Orthopedic Impairments and Oregon Technology Access Program, offer services statewide.  Others, such as Early Intervention/ Early Childhood Special Education provide programs in Douglas, Josephine, Jackson, Klamath and Lake counties. Additional employees in Jackson County provide direct services to preschool children. 

​The Douglas ESD plays many roles in serving children. These include speech and language services, IT and network support, print services, attendance support, secondary transitions, a complex needs classroom, consulting teachers, media, staff development, data retrieval, programs for hearing and visually impaired students, substitute placement, mental health therapy, leadership training and many more.

More about ESDs

Education Service Districts were created to provide cooperative services to school districts and support students within our region with cost-effective professional assistance.   Our mission is to add value to public education so that cooperation among the districts and the ESD results in higher quality, less expensive, and more diversified services.  We strive to give our districts the same types of services that a Portland, Salem or Eugene school district has access to by working together cooperatively.

As with most ESDs there are four main service areas we specialize in:

  • Information Technology
  • Instructional Services, Curriculum and Professional Development
  • Services to children with Special Needs         
  • Administrative Services include, Fiscal, Printing, and Communications

Beyond our mission to serve 13 districts in Douglas County, Douglas ESD has been awarded a number of large state contracts that serve an even a larger region including:

  • Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education in Douglas, Jackson, Josephine, Klamath and Lake Counties.
  • State assessment Helpdesk, serving all of Middle and Southern Oregon
  • South Central Early Learning Hub in Douglas, Lake, and Klamath Counties
  • Oregon Technology Access Program, statewide
  • Regional and Statewide Services for Students with Orthopedic Impairments, statewide
