About Administrative Services

The Partnership’s Administrative Services project has been established to communicate and coordinate the development of administrative service plans around the state which identify efficiencies of operation and potential savings for the benefit of local school districts. Activities of the project include the review of education service district local service plans, the development of measures of efficiency for administrative services, identification of exemplary practices for efficiencies in administrative services, the development of pilot projects for efficiencies in administrative services, and the formulation of recommendations to further enhance the efficient operation of ESD’s and local school districts. The progress in finding, implementing and measuring such efficiencies will be reported to the 2007 Legislature. The project will be guided by an advisory committee made up of ESD and local school district superintendents, business managers and human resource directors. The project director will provide monthly progress reports to the Education Enterprise Steering Committee and will complete a final report at the end of the project year in June.

ESD Services provided to local school districts

A major activity of the administrative services project has been to compile a master list of the administrative and human resource services provided by education service districts to local school districts around the state.  The results of this research are provided on the attached spreadsheet.  Note that the attachment consists of five pages:  a master list of the services provided by each of the 20 ESDs followed by a page for each of the four ESD zones. 

 This research will be followed by additional discussion with local school district superintendents about what services they would like to see offered by ESDs and what barriers currently exist to the offering of additional services.  The services identified so far will also be the basis for discussion about the benefits and cost-savings of services provided by ESDs to local school districts.
