Let's Go owls!

Welcome to the Oscoda Area Schools – home to the Oscoda Owls! 

From the Superintendent

On behalf of the entire team at Oscoda Area Schools we would like to welcome all of you to the start of an exciting and dynamic year of learning that lies ahead for our students and for us! We look forward to partnering with our families and the community as we confront countless challenges. Your support of our students and staff is an integral ingredient to the success we hope to continue. It is an exciting time to be an Owl! We just completed one of the highest achieving years of learning and extra-curricular ventures in our school's storied history. We are on the heels of outpacing ourselves in respect to our performance on scholarly accountability measures, and we recorded more championships in the arena of extra-curricular activities than at any time in the past five decades. We could not have achieved this success without so many contributions from our wonderful community. The gratitude that our students and staff would like to extend for the generosity of the community is steeped in sincerity and humility.
While our achievements have been pronounced, the new challenges that we encounter are vast. The students we serve have more expectations and requirements imposed on them in order to keep pace with our rapidly evolving society. As such, we feel that it is essential to stay grounded in the pillars that shore up our character. It is our objective to instill upon our students the value of being a positive and productive member of our community, demonstrating a work ethic embedded in working hard, developing skills to the best of our ability, exhibiting resiliency in the face of adversity, and displaying compassion through our acts of kindness and grace.
OAS is proud to offer many opportunities for our learners and the community. It is our hope that our institution serves as the hub of our community where we can generate enthusiasm in the students and for our community. This year Oscoda Area Schools will be seeking a "Sinking Fund" millage as a means to maintain and improve our facilities and to facilitate an enhanced capacity to deliver technological education to our learners. The current Sinking Fund will expire after the 2020 tax levy. This ballot initiative, if passed, would result in a net decreased millage rate compared to the levy that was in place for the 2018-19 tax year. This is the result of savings the district experienced from refinancing previous debt rates and the dissolution of one of our bonds. The Sinking Fund millage will be on the November 5, 2019 ballot.
The students of the 21st century are charged with digesting more information than at any time in history. We are committed to providing the best education possible for our children and strive to offer the kids in our community as many quality opportunities as possible. The enhancement of our programs continue to resonate with our community as we strive to put Students First.  We invite you to partner with us to deliver the finest education possible. Without the support of the community we will not be poised to accomplish this gigantic endeavor. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of service. OAS is elated at the prospect of outperforming what has been previously garnered in the spirit of improvement of our organization and the advancement of our Owls!  Thank you and let’s have the best school year we have ever experienced!

Partners in Learning
We at Oscoda Area Schools firmly believe that everyone can learn and contribute, and that all employees and volunteers at our public education school are partners in learning.

Respect is a Key Ingredient
Everyone should have respect for self and others. Community support and involvement are essential to the success of our school. Families share in the responsibilities of educating their children.
