Distributing Communications

Sharing Materials & Communication with School Staff and Students

ESD 123 partners with and provides services to school districts across southeast Washington. Each individual school district has its own communication process and protocols for disseminating information to students, staff, and families in that district. If you are looking to share communication materials, scholarship opportunities, or other information for the students and school staff within a community, we encourage you to contact your local school district and follow their required procedures for distribution of materials.

  • ESD 123 does not communicate or distribute scholarship information, unless the scholarship is available to ALL Washington students and/or educators.
  • ESD 123 does not maintain nor provide public distribution lists for regional school or district staff.

Please contact school district communication departments or administration offices and review any communication guidelines available on their websites.
