Welcome Title

The Mission of Harney Education Service District (HESD) is to assist our component school districts and the State of Oregon in providing excellent and equitable educational opportunities and successful learning environments for all Harney County students.  HESD is dedicated to providing leadership in helping to achieve Oregon's education goals and working in partnership with our schools and our community to enhance the healthy development of children and families for today and tomorrow.

HESD is “Committed to Excellence”, and we work hard to make the site a primary source for timely information for all users, and a main gateway for improved communication between parents, teachers, students and other members of our community. Our goal and responsibility is to help each student develop an enthusiasm for learning, a respect for self and others, and the skills to become a creative independent thinker and problem solver.
