Dear Parents, Families, and Community Stakeholders,
I am happy to be in the role as the program administrator of the South Coast ESD’s Regional Program. Our highly specialized staff are committed every day to serving students, families, district educators, and our community. Our regional program staff serve students in special education with deaf and hard of hearing, vision, orthopedic services, autism and traumatic brain injury needs. Together, our staff work to support the growth and success of student’s birth to 21 in Coos, Curry and Western Douglas Counties.
Our collaborative work with districts, families and our communities is vital in our service to students. Our specialists evaluate students, provide direct or consultative services, train staff, and support parent groups. It is the regional teams focus to ensure specialists have a connection with families and students from the beginning of the school experience until exiting from regional services or graduation from the special education program.
We appreciate the opportunity to work with your student, serve your family and be involved in supporting your student’s education. Our team is passionate about serving your student and partnering with you and your school’s teams. If you have any questions about our program or services, please contact our office.
