Welcome to Coos Bay School District

The District is located on the South Central Oregon Coast in Coos County and has approximately 3,100 students from kindergarten through 12th grade. We have two K-3 primary schools, two intermediate schools for 4th through 7th graders and Marshfield High School serving students grades 8 through 12.  The Harding Learning Center provides several alternative schooling options.


An Invitation from Coos Bay Schools

On behalf of Coos Bay Schools Board of Directors and the Facilities Outreach Committee, you are invited to attend the December 1st Special Board meeting at 5:30 PM held at the Coos Bay Library in the meeting room. During this meeting, the Board will be deciding between two grade configuration options to which the district may be transitioning.

Option A is Pre-Kindergarten through 6th grade and 7th through 12th grade

Option B is Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade and 9th through 12th grade

These options are the result of input collected by the Facilities Outreach Committee through surveys and community meetings over the last two years. There will be an opportunity for public input.

We look forward to seeing you on December 1st at 5:30 PM at the Coos Bay Library, 525 Anderson in Coos Bay.

Excellence in Education Award

The Bay Area Chamber of Commerce believes that great education and a great economy go hand in hand. Thriving businesses support a healthy education and graduates who are work or college ready in turn support our local businesses and community. It is our goal to build bridges between business and education throughout the Bay Area. To that end, we are looking for nominations for three Educator Awards which are handed out annually:

Innovation in Teaching is for educators that are on the cutting edge and may form exciting community or business partnerships or utilize technology to improve learning.

Contributor to Education is for educators who contribute to the learning of students by their tireless efforts, time and dedication.

Unsung Hero is for educators recognized for their dedication to making sure students graduate. Regardless of their titles, they are all heroes to the students they help reach the goals of diploma or degree.

From these three honorees a Bay Area Educator of the Year is selected and will be honored at the annual Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet the last Saturday in January. The two runners up will be recognized at our monthly luncheons following the banquet.

This is a great way to recognize that individual educator that has made a difference in a student’s life. Anyone can make a nomination and nominations can be made any time during the year but the deadline for submission is November 30th. The form is accessible at Educator Award Nomination Form . Contact the Chamber office at 541-266-0868 for more information.
