Dan Forbess


I am honored to serve as Superintendent of the Reedsport School District. After receiving my Bachelor’s degree from Long Beach State, I began my teaching career in 1979 at Klamath Union High School in Klamath Falls. Following my time in KFalls, I worked in the private sector as a facility designer and completed my Master’s degree at Long Beach State. I returned to teaching in 1985 at Lane Community College and started the Computer Aided Drafting program. In the early 1990’s I moved into an administrative role at Douglas Education Service District in Roseburg. In 1996, I began my 20 year career as an Oregon school district Superintendent – Camas Valley, North Douglas, Oakland, and Philomath are school communities I am proud to have served in. Along the way, I completed my post graduate Education Specialist in Leadership degree at Lewis & Clark College.
Reedsport is a special place and I will continue working with staff, students, and community members to ensure all students reach their academic and social success goals.
