School District 1
A rigorous and relevant education for each and every student
In May of 2023, the Central Curry School District passed a bond of $15 million to repair, renovate, and renew their district properties.
An additional $4 million dollars in matching grant funds have already been pre-approved by the State of Oregon to aid in the renovations.
Most of the district buildings were built in the 1940’s and ’50s, which now require significant renovations. The Central Curry School District Bond Program ensures students have the opportunity to learn in a safe, up-to-date environment, and preserve school facilities as long term assets.
The bulk of the funds will be used for roof/gutter repair, windows, entry doors, interior finishes, new HVAC systems, siding, electrical, and plumbing. In addition to that, funds will be used to improve traffic circulation at both schools, create dedicated secure entrances, and increase the safety of district facilities. Some of the funds will also be used to upgrade athletic facilities and update vocational education space.
Many of those in the community were once kids who passed through the district and ended up living in Gold Beach – so the Central Curry School District bond program is a crucial investment in the future of the community for decades to come. It will provide crucial upgrades, greater security, and the ability for growth in vocational education for students.

On behalf of the Central Curry School District, I would like to thank all the voters who responded to the bond measure that was on the May 16th ballot. The unofficial results indicate the bond has passed with a 56% approval rate. We are grateful to our community for investing in our buildings to provide our students and staff with a safe and comfortable school environment at each of our school sites. We celebrate this accomplishment with you and appreciate your continued support.
I want to thank the CCSD School Board and bond planning committee for all the hours of work they put into making this happen. Your vision has been inspiring.
