Communication Services

The Northwest Education Services (North Ed) Communications Department assists with the collection, preparation, writing, and dissemination of information. Production of marketing and publicity materials for educational events at both the ISD and local district level is a service provided by this department.  Services include:

  • Production of newsletters, brochures and other marketing collateral
  • Graphic design and layout services
  • Writing and editing services
  • Media and community outreach
  • Digital media support services

What do school communicators do? Here's a summary from the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA). 


North Ed School Alerts

North Ed offers a variety of career and technical education programs and special education instruction directly to students. In that sense, we operate very much like a local school, and we share important and timely information, such as school closures and urgent news alerts, with our school community in a number of ways. 

Visit our School Closings & Alerts page to learn more.


North Ed Communications Plan

North Ed strives to ensure effective communication with all stakeholders. To assist us in achieving that goal, a revised communications plan has been developed. We will continue review and revise this plan in response to the needs of our school communities. If you have any comments or suggestions, please email us at
