Message from our new AESD President
After retiring from a career in education I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to become a member of the NEWESD 101 Board. I was immediately impressed (and continue to be) with the range and scope of services and support provided by our ESD. Even more impressive was the ability of the administration and staff and their desire to do the best job possible for the schools and children of our region. Now, after having the opportunity to connect with the other ESDs, it is apparent that these talents and that desire exist throughout our state.
