Education Service Districts in Oregon. A Progress Report to the 61st Legislative Assembly, as Required by Chapter 445, Oregon Laws 1979, House Bill 2393, ORS 334.175 Sec. 2.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
Through a wide variety of programs and services, Oregon's 25 educational service districts (ESDs) link the state Department of Education with local school districts while helping districts provide a cost-effective education and fostering equal educational opportunity statewide. This report lists the general ESD programs and services required by Oregon law, the specific ESD programs in effect in each county, and various regional programs involving several ESDs and counties. It provides a student census for all Oregon school districts for 1974-1980, as well as a summary of each county's property valuations and taxes levied for 1979-1980 and general fund expenditures for 1978-1981. One portion concentrates on programs and county expenditures for handicapped students and also shows the cost per student for various disabilities and the number of disabled students in each county in 1980. General background information in the report includes a brief history of ESDs since 1849, the procedures for ESD program development and approval, the recommended ESD planning format, and a glossary of ESD-related terms.
