Licensed Substitutes

South Coast ESD wanted to update licensed and classified substitutes that due to continued COVID 19 restrictions, the SCESD building will be closed to the general public, including substitutes.

Substitutes for the Early Childhood Center (ECC) located in the lower level of SCESD will work with the EI/ECSE program directly for entrance, cleaning and classroom protocols.

We are still waiting for the districts to complete their blueprints to know if they will reopen completely in person, hybrid (part-time in person/part-time online) or all distance learning.

You will need to follow all protocols from the districts in which you will be subbing. Each district may be completely different. We will attempt to provide information on the SCESD substitute page but would urge you to check the district website(s) or contact them directly towards the middle/end of August when they should have information to share.

On another note, we have made all forms fillable and hope this will make completing the substitute registration easier.

Please save the form to your desktop, fill it out and then you are welcome to email, fax or print and mail to: South Coast ESD
1350 Teakwood Ave Coos Bay, OR 97420
