Communication and Collaboration 
Provide frequent, clear, and results-driven communications in order to support student achievement by building a positive school and district image, fostering trust, instilling pride, and engaging all stakeholders (school, family, and community) through: 
  • Establishing and maintaining community partnerships
  • Encouraging volunteering/participation within our schools
  • Creating opportunities for participation and collaboration in school and district initiatives and goals
Recruit, Support, Develop and Retain Highly Effective Staff
To improve the learning and education opportunities for all students by continuing to build staff capacity to perform at a high level by investing in professional growth opportunities, providing new teacher mentoring and support, promoting communication and collaboration among staff, and fostering a positive culture.

2019-2021 OSD Instructional Plan

Understanding the power of our student’s language production will elevate to academic content. Language is a critical tool for communicating what we know, how we feel, and how we connect with others to fill participate as engaged citizens. Locally, not all students have the same access to language, especially academic English needed for success in school and life. This presents an equity challenge. Yet, as a team, we can convert this equity challenge into an opportunity by elevating access to academic language. 
We will accomplish this by: 

•    Developing a coherent curriculum plan, aligned vertically and horizontally by standards, and amplified by attention to language use; 
•    Teachers will compose learning experiences through intentional planning that compel students to use language in authentic, purposeful ways; 
•    Students will have the opportunity to access ideas, content, and compelling experiences that afford the choices to define their own path;
•    We do this by leveraging the “three moments” in planning with the end in mind, anticipating the language demands inherent in our standards.
