Our innovation process, ThinkUp! works to increase the excellence, equity and efficiency of our services by generating and testing innovative ideas using best practices from the entrepreneurial community. The ThinkUp! innnovation process invites educators to submit ideas and vote on the best ones. The crowdsourced ideas then move into a design process of testing and scaling. 


The High Desert Education Service District is committed to integrating an innovative mindset and approach into all that we do. i4Education serves as a regional resource to the HDESD and Central Oregon school districts who share the belief that the best ideas come from those closest to the problems to solve.
