Ohio Educational Directory System (OEDS)

A relational database system for the collection of directory information for educational entities and individuals that is Web-based for both updating and information retrieval.

Links to the Ohio Educational Directory System (OEDS) and OEDS Reports are below. Click on New OEDS to search for a district or building IRN.


The Ohio Educational Directory System (OEDS) is a decentralized data system in which organizations (those who do business with ODE, such as public districts, public schools, joint vocational schools, community schools, educational service centers, nonpublic schools, etc.) maintain their own data. The general public can search OEDS for the most current information about an organization. OEDS organization administrators must login to their SAFE accounts to update information.
