Lake County Education Service District (ESD) is governed by a seven member Board of Directors elected to four-year terms by regional citizens. Five of the board members are elected from zones and the remaining two are elected "at large" throughout the region.

This is a time of both challenge and opportunity for the Lake County ESD as we face a continued push to reorganize or merge at the legislative level.As a result, the ESD Board of Directors and leadership team are actively engaged in working with local districts to develop a restructuring plan designed to effectively serve the Lake County ESD, local districts and the students they serve.
