OASD K-5 Literacy Curriculum Review and Adoption Process
The Oshkosh Area School District (OASD) is committed to fundamentally evolving our approach to early literacy and equipping all students with the foundational skills they need to be successful readers, writers, and learners.
The OASD will be adopting a new K-5 literacy core curriculum for the 2025-2026 school year. To inform this adoption, during the 2024-2025 school year the District will conduct a pilot of one or more new literacy curricula at select grade levels across all elementary schools. A literacy committee has been created to support this exploratory work and the District will be providing updates throughout the curriculum review process. An overview of the pilot, committee, and curriculum being considered is available below.
As a district, we have set rigorous literacy goals in policy to establish high expectations of student achievement in reading, and create a direct connection from the boardroom to the classroom. Literacy is our number one academic priority and the District is engaging in this curriculum process to radically increase our literacy outcomes for all students.
