Purchasing Programs in Washington
As classrooms, meeting spaces and other learning environments become equipped with digital-age technology, it’s important to be able to get great pricing on technologies that will help to improve learning and presentations. The DigitalEdge purchasing program at ESD 112 utilizes the power of numbers to bring the cost down on technology products and audio-visual equipment, and in these tough financial times, all K-12 schools, colleges and universities, libraries, public and governmental agencies can use a little help in making their dollars stretch a little further. Products on the DigitalEdge product and price list have been competitively bid.
The Washington Learning Source (WLS) is a statewide program developed by Washington's nine regional Educational Service Districts. Our mission is to provide a place for districts to choose products and services that meet their needs and create economic efficiencies through ESD collaboration and a regionally supported delivery model. This website has been created to meet those needs.
