Need help? 

Are you looking for support or help for your child?  Not sure who to ask or where to get help? The Office of Educational Ombuds (OEO) is a resource available to all K-12 families in public schools. 


OEO 's mission is to work with families, communities, and schools to address problems together so that every student can fully participate and thrive in Washington’s K-12 public schools.


They offer free confidential services and can be contacted by anyone with a question or concern about a K-12 Washington State Public School.
