Central Curry School District (CCSD) is a public school district that serves the communities of Agness and Gold Beach in Curry County, Oregon, United States, as well as the surrounding area.

History[edit]

CCSD was formed in 1997 when four elementary school districts and one high school district were merged, because of an action by the Oregon State Legislature that required districts without a kindergarten through twelfth grade (K-12) educational program to merge into a single district that did offer such a program.[1]

The districts that merged were: Gold Beach Union High School District, Riley Creek Elementary School District, Ophir Elementary School District, Pistol River Elementary School District and Agness Elementary School District, each of which was a one-building district.[1] Ophir Elementary School and Pistol River School were closed and the properties sold.[1]

Agness Elementary is kept open because its geographical remoteness—approximately 30 miles from Gold Beach up the winding and sometimes dangerous Forest Route 33/Curry County Road 595.[1]

Demographics[edit]

In the 2009 school year, the district had 38 students classified as homeless by the Department of Education, or 5.8% of students in the district.[2]

Schools[edit]

Agness Elementary, serving grades kindergarten through fifth grade, is located in Agness.[3] Riley Creek School, serving students from kindergarten through eighth grade, and Gold Beach High School, serving grades 9 through 12, are located in Gold Beach.
