Professional Support Association @ Puget Sound ESD

Puget Sound Educational Service District (PSESD) is one of nine regional educational agencies serving school districts and state-approved private schools in Washington. Educational Service Districts, created by the legislature, are an essential regional delivery system for early learning and K-12 services in the state.

Educational Service Districts improve the quality, equity, and efficiency of educational programs through partnerships with K-12 education, early learning, higher education, and public and private organizations. 

Together, we save schools money through regional efficiencies, centralized services, pooled resources to:

  • Improve the effectiveness of educational programs
  • Deliver specialized services otherwise unavailable
  • Provide leadership for innovative and effective educational practices
  • Build networks and partnerships among districts and other agencies
  • Link schools with regional, state and national educational resources
