Welcome to Kent ISD

Welcome to Kent ISD

Kent ISD is a regional educational service agency devoted to achievement for all students.  We provide instructional and administrative services to more than 300 schools, 20 public districts, three non-public districts, and many public school academies and non-public schools within our boundaries. We serve the broader community by helping our schools prepare nearly 120,000 students for school and life success.

We help districts devote more dollars directly to the classroom by providing essential services, collaborative initiatives and valuable learning for the region's students and teachers. Regional collaboration is the way we work, both with our school districts and our community partners. Together, we lead learning for the region.
