OSPI serves the state’s 295 public school districts and 6 state-tribal education compact schools. School districts play a crucial role in the success of local schools. The primary governing body of our K–12 schools are locally elected school boards. School boards, with local superintendents, oversee their schools at the local level. OSPI supports school districts by sharing laws and policies, data and research, communication tools, best practices, and more. This page contains data, support options, and resources for school district administrators and board members.
