Message from Superintendent Bryan Trendell

I consider it a great honor to be the new Superintendent of Coos Bay Public Schools. I was born and raised here in Coos Bay. I graduated from Marshfield in 1981. My wife Jean and I moved our family back here in 1997 and it has been a wonderful experience raising our children in this great community. My vision is to work together with our staff and community to make Coos Bay Public Schools the premier district on the South Coast and one of the best in the State of Oregon. To accomplish this, I will focus on the following key areas:

  • Communicate openly, honestly, and effectively while cultivating positive relationships and trust within our district and our community.
  • Lead by example and nurture a positive student and staff morale.
  • Recognize and acknowledge the quality programs we have in academics, arts, activities, and athletics.
  • Continually look for ways to improve in all areas of our district.
  • Embrace opportunities that demonstrate a commitment to our community.
  • Recruit, hire, and retain quality staff.
  • Prepare “all” kids for a successful future.

I’m excited to begin the important work that lies ahead. I know together we can accomplish great things.

Bryan Trendell
