About Substitute Services

The High Desert ESD provides substitute teaching and educational assistant services for many local school districts including Bend-La Pine Schools, Redmond, Crook County, Sisters, Culver, Powell Butte Charter School, Redmond Proficiency Academy and Seven Peaks School. Additionally, the ESD provides substitute services to area Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education (EI/ECSE) programs and the Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC). We work directly with the High Desert ESD Human Resources Department.
