Great example of collaborative efforts

High Desert Education Service District News Item

The Bend-La Pine Schools’ Transition Co-op worked with their special education department and High Desert ESD to find employment for Alex.

With a little bit of team effort, Alex is now employed! Weekly he collects the shredding and recyclable containers from several offices at the Bend-La Pine School district building. He then takes the containers to the basement and empties them for the Opportunity Foundation to pick up. Alex then returns the containers to the appropriate desk and/or office.

Silvia Bundy, Alex’s mother said, “What a win-win scenario for Bend-La Pine Schools, High Desert ESD and especially Alex. Everyone is so pleased at how this is working out they’re looking at expanding this service to all of the programs/offices housed at the BLP Administration Building.”
