Educational Service District 101 seeks to reduce gang activity through improved coordination and engagement of existing resources and activities that support multiple complementary anti-gang strategies in the following targeted areas: Spokane County and nine high schools and communities located within Spokane County, Washington state: Central Valley High School, Deer Park High School, East Valley High School, Freeman High School, Liberty High School, Mead High School, Mt. Spokane High School, University High School, and West Valley High School. Partners in this initiative are the Spokane County Sheriff's Office, United States District Attorney's Office, school resource deputies in participating school districts, the Spokane Gang Enforcement Team, Community-Oriented Policing Sub-stations, Sheriff Community Oriented Policing Effort, Washington Sheriffs and Police Chiefs, the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction's Gangs in Schools Task Force and the Greater Spokane Substance Abuse Council.

The Gang Prevention Coordination Assistance Program will provide necessary coordination and systems improvement among schools, youth, families, law enforcement and community/state agencies resulting in the reduction of gang-related activity. This systems improvement effort will be achieved through the specific anti-gang strategies of primary and secondary prevention and increase the capacity of local partners to collaborate and implement evidence-based strategies.
