Who We Are

Image: Child receiving a hearing testThe InterMountain Education Service District serves school districts in eastern Oregon. The IMESD has more than 235 employees who serve nearly 23,000 students in 18 component school districts in four counties -- Morrow, Umatilla, Union and Baker.

What We Do

The IMESD is one of 16 education service districts in Oregon. ESDs are legislatively mandated to provide four core areas of service to students and schools:

  1. Programs for Children with special needs
  2. Instructional support
  3. Technology support
  4. Administrative services

While the IMESD provides excellent service in these four areas, it also provides a multitude of other programs and services to school districts and has developed several regional initiatives through collaboration and braided resources with other regional organizations.

An entrepreneurial sector of the IMESD provides similar services to school districts outside the component area and to nonprofit organizations and other public agencies as a way of subsidizing services for school districts and relieving reliance upon the General Fund.
