About Us

The InterMountain Education Service District is the result of a merger between the Umatilla-Morrow and Union-Baker ESDs, completed on May 31, 2011. The resulting IMESD has served the children of Eastern Oregon since 1863. The IMESD has approximately 235 employees who serve nearly 23,000 students in 18 school districts throughout a four-county service area -- Umatilla, Morrow, Union and Baker counties.

The IMESD is legislatively mandated to provide four core areas of service to students and schools: programs for children with special needs, technology support, administrative services and school improvement services. However, while the IMESD provides excellent service in these four program areas, it also provides a multitude of other programs and services to school districts. In addition, the IMESD also has an entrepreneurial sector, InterMountain Initiatives, which provides similar services to school districts outside the component area, non-profit organizations and other public agencies as a way of subsidizing services for school districts and relieving reliance upon the General Fund.
