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.


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]


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]


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.
