The High Desert Education Service District operates the Behavior Intervention Center for students with behavioral and social challenges that make it difficult for them to be successful in a school setting. The BIC is a regional program offering services to school districts in Redmond, Bend and Sisters. The BIC program offers half-day sessions for students in grades kindergarten to eighth grade.

The BIC program also provides mental health counseling and psychiatric consultation on a limited basis for students with specific needs.
