Public Education School in Oscoda, Michigan

 

Oscoda Area Schools in Oscoda, Michigan, provide you with a public education school for K-12 students.

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.

Hot off the Press!


We are extremely excited to start the 2015-16 school year!

We hope you had an enjoyable summer and are ready to return to school energized and ready to learn.

This has been by far the busiest summer for Oscoda Area Schools that I can recall. We have been building our academic infrastructure, our technology base, and improving our building facilities.  Our community should be proud of the district’s accomplishments in student achievement.  As a matter of fact, the district was recognized by the State of Michigan for its success.  We are grateful for the support that our citizens have given the students and staff. Major improvements are happening in every area of our organization.
The Oscoda Area Schools Technology Department is working vigorously to achieve the lofty goals that the School Improvement Team set for them.   To put things in perspective, the district added over 850 laptops and desktops since last year to accompany the approximately 800 computers already in place. These computers serve our 1200 students and 175 staff members.  This means that we have at least one computer available to every student and staff member at all times!  This major injection of technology represents the district’s commitment to ensuring that our students have access to the most appropriate individualized instructional tools available. The district was able to install WIFI throughout the entire campus with the help of a grant, and our bandwidth capacity was increased to ensure that our technology functions efficiently.
 We are excited to welcome staff back on August 31st, and have a plan in place that will help them continue to grow professionally. Our staff will receive training throughout the school year on how to effectively use the technological tools available to them. These trainingS will be dedicated to integrating technology into our students’ individual and collective educational experiences.   
The district continues to update all of the resources available to our students. By the end of the 2015-2016 school year all textbooks for all grade levels will be less than five years old.  The opportunities Oscoda students have are truly an amazing blessing.
We know that despite the major increased emphasis on technology the biggest contributing factors to student achievement are the student, their family and our staff.  We are very pleased that we were able to increase the exposure of our students to our highly qualified staff by offering eight weeks of summer school this year.  In addition, our administrators worked very hard to recruit five new teachers to join our team!  This is a very talented group of new teachers, and we are excited to introduce them to our students and to the community!
A tremendous amount of construction has taken place at OAS.  This year’s Sinking Fund resources have been used to remodel six restrooms and replace two large sections of roofing.  We will continue to improve the facilities on an annual basis as we receive this revenue. 
 The passage of the athletic bond was extremely exciting news for our students and our community.  We repaired the pool to the point that we were able to fill it with water, and swimmers began jumping into the pool in mid July.  We hired architects, engineers and pool specialists to complete the remaining repairs.  We intend to have new lighting, pumps, piping, drains, platforms, handicap lift, pool-cover, HVAC unit, chlorination system and a means to efficiently heat the pool installed soon.  It is our goal to have the pool completely repaired and ready to use for many years to come by mid winter, with relatively little down time to the pool’s availability for our students and our community.  
The track was stripped, and a track consultant was hired to manage the process of improving this critical piece of the Robert D. Hodges Sports Complex.  We hope to have the track replaced this fall.  
We would like to extend a major thank you to the Friends of the Auditorium whom through their efforts raised funds for the painting of the stage and the addition of all new stage curtains.  The auditorium is looking better than it has in decades. The summer events hosted here were outstanding!  
The gymnasium floor at OHS was refinished and is looking beautiful. A basketball area will be installed for our 7th and 8th graders to use when outside at recess when they return to school in September. 
 In addition, the district partnered with the Michigan State Police and the Oscoda Township Police Department to secure a grant to install a security system at Richardson Elementary similar to the one that was installed at OHS. 
The planning and programs that have taken place at OAS will most assuredly lead to the improved services to our students and to our community!  We look forward to another successful school year!
