Public Relations

  • Our multiple communications services at ESD 105 assist in promoting the programs and activities of the agency itself, and are available to meet the individual promotional needs of our schools on a fee for service basis.

    School Promotional Services:

    ESD 105 offers publication, media, and other promotional communication services to area schools.  Available fee-based services include writing and/or designing school newsletters, video projects, graphic design and special publication, news release development and distribution, integrated organizational marketing image development, and media relations for special events.  Refer to the Communications Services handout on this page for more details.

Unleashed Cooperative

  • The Yakima Herald-Republic newspaper's "Unleashed" student journalism feature was launched in 1999, and in 2009 became funded through an ESD 105 cooperative that currently involves several school districts (East Valley, Selah, West Valley, Yakima, and Zillah) plus La Salle High School and Riverside Christian School.  The Unleashed section is published in the newspaper on the 4th Sunday of the month and contains features, columns, reviews, photography, and illustrations by a team of area high school students.
