Rationale: The Oregon Association of Education Service Districts (OAESD) is the statewide organization representing the interests, both individually and collectively, of Oregon’s education service districts (ESDs). The purpose of the Association is to assist school districts and the Oregon Department of Education in achieving Oregon’s educational goals by providing equitable, high quality, cost-effect and local responsive educational services at a regional level.
In meeting the Association’s purpose, OAESD finds it beneficial to work with businesses and other entities which share a common interest in achieving Oregon’s educational goals. Such arrangements provide an opportunity for businesses to tell their story to the ESDs in the state through exhibits and/or the sponsorship of OAESD events. Businesses and entities interested in working with OAESD shall be engaged in activities and/or products which are consistent with the purposes of the Association.
