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.

Slater Apple TV
Apple TV in the Classroom
Local teachers are welcoming Apple TV's to their classrooms! This device streams content wirelessly from the Internet to the television. When an Apple TV is paired with the AirPlay feature of iOS devices, it can display whatever the mobile device is playing. It allows teachers to demonstrate lessons and apps from the iPad from anywhere in the room. At Slater School, all K-5 classes now have an Apple TV and a projector. The teachers have been receiving training on how to use the tools, and further instruction is planned for effective implementation.
