Openings for specialists open for coming school year

We're hiring! Specialists are needed to work with youth in Southern Oregon for the 2016-17 school year. The Douglas Education Service District has immediate openings for a speech-language pathologist, physical therapist and a school psychologist.

Specialists in these positions play pivotal roles to help break down and remove barriers to education for students with disabilities.

Candidates for these jobs will work with children from infants to 21-year-olds throughout our service region, which includes 13 school districts in rural Douglas County.

Douglas County schools seek to bolster gender equity in classes

One of the biggest challenges in education is attracting students to careers that have long been identified with one gender. But changes are brewing, and some recent efforts by Douglas County educators have drawn national attention.


A public meeting of the Budget Committee of the Douglas Education Service District, Douglas County, State of Oregon, will be held at the Douglas Education Service District building, 1871 NE Stephens Street, Roseburg, Oregon to discuss the budget for the fiscal year July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017. The meeting will take place on May 26, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.

Your input needed for state education

How good is your imagination? Ready to put it to work on behalf of a classroom (or lots of them) near you?

As Oregonians prepare for the new federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), education leaders across the state are asking for input on what citizens want from their schools. Specifically, Salam Noor, the state’s deputy superintendent of public instruction, is inviting Oregonians to reimagine education in our state.

May 5 MATP celebration walks on the wild side

Some of Douglas County's greatest kids have been waiting a long time for this year's Cinco de Mayo, and here's why. Our annual Motor Activities Training Program celebration takes place from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, May 5, at Fremont Middle School.  

This year’s theme, “MATP on Safari,” promises to be a wild time, with Wildlife Safari staff bringing small animals as well as items for children to explore through touch and sound.
