Lincoln County School District serves students from all areas in the county, which occupies a 55-mile strip of the central Oregon coast beginning at Cascade Head, south to Cape Perpetua. East-West distances averages about 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean to inland areas. The county's total area of about 1,000 square miles makes it comparable in size to Rhode Island.
The county's 40,000 residents cluster around the coastal communities of Lincoln City, Depoe Bay, Newport, Waldport and Yachats, and around inland communities of Toledo, Siletz and Eddyville. Each area of our district is unique, with different perspectives and cultures. Overriding all areas and schools in Lincoln County School District is a commitment to quality learning for students and staff.
Our guiding philosophy of "continuous improvement" is intended for all who touch our district.
The District serves about 5,200 students from Kindergarten through 12th grade in 10 regular schools and four public charter schools, with a total of approximately 500 employees. LCSD contracts with Sodexo for custodial and food services, and with Mid Columbia Bus Company for transportation services.
