The Oshkosh Area School District (OASD), in partnership with Oshkosh4Education (O4E), has embarked on a stakeholder-driven strategic planning process to develop the District’s Strategic Plan 3.0. The process will include multiple opportunities for community engagement through face-to-face discussions and an online survey. Feedback received will be used to assist the Oshkosh Area School District Board of Education in defining the District’s vision of success and developing priority goals for the strategic plan. 

At this time, members of the Oshkosh community are invited to participate in one-hour focus group sessions with an O4E facilitator to discuss their vision of success for the District and the District’s strengths and opportunities for improvement. Sessions will take place during the week of February 11, 2019, at various times and locations throughout Oshkosh (see schedule below). Each session will be guided by the same questions. Community members are encouraged to select a date/time that is most convenient for them. If members of the community are unable to attend one of the sessions, an online survey will be available for individuals to share their ideas and feedback. The survey will be available on the OASD website for one week beginning Monday, February 11, 2019.

“We are grateful for our partnership with Oshkosh4Education and the entire Oshkosh community,” stated Superintendent of Schools Dr. Vickie Cartwright. “We are looking forward to working together to develop the next phase of our strategic plan and ensuring that our students, schools, district, and community continue to succeed.”

The Oshkosh Area School District uses a systems approach to focus on organizational improvement efforts. To ensure ongoing improvements, the District monitors and updates the plan on a regular basis. Community members can remain informed on goal progress by accessing the plan through the District’s website. An update to the strategic plan typically occurs every three to five years to allow for the continuation of efforts and identification of emerging opportunities.
