Preserving the Excellence

One of our most important jobs as school leaders is to ensure the District’s facilities remain safe, dry and secure, and support the educational and instructional needs of current and future generations of Oakwood students and staff. 

District leaders, with the support and assistance of community members, staff members, students, parents and building experts, have created the District's Master Facilities Plan.  The Master Facilities Plan Report was accepted by the Board of Education Nov. 19, 2018.   

We hope you will stay engaged in the process.
