Brief Description of the Site:
Northwest Educational Service District 189 is one of nine educational service districts in the state of Washington and serves 35 school districts and state-approved private schools in Island, San Juan, Skagit, Snohomish, and Whatcom counties. The Web site is designed for administrators, teachers, and school nurses. A new area for fiscal services is currently under development.
How to use the site:
Teachers and site administrators in the targeted counties access a wealth of information about programs and professional development opportunities by visiting various areas of the site. Site visitors from outside the service area will also find useful information and ideas. Topic areas include School Improvement, Student Programs (e.g., History Day and Young Authors), Technology Leadership, and Migrant Education. School nurses and health aides will want to check out the School Nurse Corps area. Links feature information about health staffing recommendations, student health management, articles about school health issues, and Internet resources for school nurses.
