The Technology Services department provides technology programs, and cooperatives for school districts in the NWESD region. Funding for these programs comes from a mix of grants and fees for services.
Educational Technology Support Center (ETSC)
This program is designed to provide school districts in the state of Washington with leadership, support, and training as they move forward with their technology implementations. An Educational Technology Support Center is located at each of the nine Educational Service Districts in Washington State.
The K-20 network provides technology support services for regional school districts as they connect to the state K-20 network, providing interactive video and data services. Funding is provided by a state grant that is managed by the state Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).
Digital Resource Center (DRC)
The DRC provides educational resources to districts at a reduced fee. When a district or school becomes a DRC member, prices are reduced for expensive database subscriptions, media material costs, and other educational fees. Our mission is to provide cooperative services to our education communities that will enhance student learning.
A cooperative of NWESD districts provides trained technology and network support personnel to member districts. Funding is from fees levied on the member districts.
Web Services Cooperative
A cooperative of districts inside and outside the NWESD region, to provide worldwide web (WWW) applications, and web hosting services to the member districts. Funding is from fees levied on the member districts.
Agency internal technical support services
The NWESD's own technology infrastructure and systems are supported by Technology Services staff. Funding is derived from a fee to NWESD programs that is associated with various support categories; e.g. desktop computers, laptops, personal digital assistants (PDAs), MSTS (Microsoft terminal services) connections, and infrastructure only. Fees are calculated annually based on support effort which is summarized by the agency's helpdesk system.
