Chief Operations Officer

South Coast Education Service District


An Extraordinary Opportunity in Oregon’s Adventure Coast.

Imagine waking up every day on the spectacular Southern Oregon Coast, and seeing scenery like this on your way to work.  Imagine living within a stone’s throw of both the Oregon Dunes National Seashore and the world-renowned golf courses at Bandon Dunes.

Now imagine serving as the Chief Operations Officer of the South Coast Education Service District, an agency tasked with responding to the needs of school districts in its region through the delivery of school improvement, technology, special education and administrative services toward the achievement of Oregon’s educational goal of equitable, high quality, educational services for all students.

The South Coast Education Service District, based in Coos Bay, Oregon is such a place.  We are approximately 125 employees serving 16,000 students in ten local school districts.  Our staff provides vital services to students and educational staff from Reedsport to the California border. Our organization’s vision is “Together We Can” and in service to the children, families and school districts in our region, we focus on four guiding principles: Quality Service, Professionalism, Growth and Sustainability.

The new SCESD COO will supervise the Finance, Information Technology, and Maintenance Departments. The COO is a member of the executive team and reports directly to the Superintendent. They will oversee an annual budget of $39 million, an Infinite Visions Consortium of 32 school districts and ESD’s, and the maintenance and upkeep of two district owned facilities.

 Please learn about the southern Oregon coast, the city of Coos Bay, and — if you’re new to ESDs, you can learn about them here. Confidential inquiries may be addressed to Brandie Monroe, Director of Human Resources for SCESD, at  Use the link to the left to apply for this exciting opportunity.
