NEWESD 101 Board of Directors
ESDs are governed by a lay board of directors consisting of directors of seven to nine citizens who are accountable to and elected by the school board members in the region's public school districts. The Board members represent geographic direct districts based on the U.S. Census data. The ESD Board provides direction to the superintendent, who is advised by local school district superintendents.

Our Goals
   We will provide leadership that assures NEWESD 101 serves to create vision and encourage collaboration with and among the school districts, higher education, business, and private and non-profit partners within the service region.
   We will 
be actively involve and engaged in the programs and services of NEWESD 101, and will serve as liaisons for the major areas of NEWESD 101 service.
Regular Board meetings
 are scheduled at 4:00 PM on the third Tuesday of every month between August and June, at the NEWESD 101 Regal Conference Center, Classroom 2, 4202 S. Regal Street, Spokane, WA.
