Superintendents from the state’s nine ESDs have been busy in Olympia this legislative session advocating on behalf of ESDs and the 295 school districts they collectively serve on legislation including school safety, Climate Science, special education, and Career Connected Learning. Also important to ESDs is delaying the move to the SEBB (School Employees Benefits Board) because it only funds a small portion of actual ESD employee benefits costs.
