Board of Education
Oakwood Schools is governed by a five-member School Board, elected at large and serving four-year terms.
All Board members maintain an email address to easily facilitate constituent communication. If you wish to contact a Board Member, please refer to the Board Members' introduction in the Meet the Board Members section.
As citizens who serve children and represent their community, individual school board members face complex and demanding challenges. Boards establish a vision for the education program, design a structure to achieve that vision, assure schools are accountable to the community and strongly advocate continuous improvement in student learning.
Board members pull together as a team toward a common goal - helping students achieve. Board members contribute hundreds of hours each year leading their district and are deeply involved in activities, spending many hours at the schools and extracurricular events. Whether crafting policies, hiring administrators, listening to staff and student concerns, or recognizing outstanding programs, board members always keep their eyes on doing what is best for our students.
Oakwood Schools uses BoardDocs, a cloud based management solution system, to manage all aspects of the preparation, approval and distribution of documents associated with board meetings.

Oakwood Schools Board of Education demonstrated support for the Oakwood Inclusion Coalition, passing a resolution Monday, Oct. 12, 2020 at the Board’s regular monthly meeting to recognize the community group.
OIC is a citizen-driven organization with the mission “to study, promote, and celebrate an inclusive, equitable, diverse and welcoming environment and community for everyone who lives, works, visits, or passes through Oakwood.”
“The Board of Education is pleased to join the Oakwood Inclusion Coalition to help advance the foundational importance of diversity, equity and inclusion and to help promote these values throughout our community. We hope the district's active collaboration fosters an authentic and meaningful dialogue and set of actions that extend far beyond our community's borders, which intersects with all people everywhere. We look forward to the opportunities to develop and grow through our own vulnerabilities and awareness,” Oakwood BOE President Todd Duwel said.
Oakwood City Council and the Wright Memorial Public Library approved similar resolutions.
