The Oregon Department of Education Information Technology section supports a diverse set of customers that are geographically dispersed throughout the State of Oregon. ODE serves approximately 550,000 students, 27,000 teachers, 1200 schools and 197 school districts through a variety of applications and data collections. In addition to our external stakeholders, we also provide desktop and network support services to nearly 500 staff located at the Public Service Building and Oregon School for the Deaf.

This is accomplished through system development, infrastructure management, internal and external application support, and partnerships with our education service districts (ESDs) and districts.
