The District also continues to make strong gains in the area of student growth in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics, where it scored 74.6 out of a possible 100 points, compared to the state average of 66 points.  Last year, OASD’s growth score was the highest among K-12 school districts in Waukesha County.

 “As a district, our focus on continuous improvement of academic performance over the last four years has been targeted at both student achievement and student growth, so we are happy to see these promising results,” stated Superintendent Dr. Roger Rindo. “While we are not complacent, our growth on the state report card, in comparison to how we were performing when we formally began our focused continuous improvement work four years ago, is something to celebrate and is a reflection of the incredible commitment from our teachers and building leaders.”

Time to celebrate!

All five OASD elementary schools received Silver Level Recognition from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) for their ability to fully implement their behavioral work in Positive Behaviors Interventions & Supports (PBIS) at the universal school wide level for at least two years in a row and at a Tier 2, selected level/small group, for at least one year. This work lays a solid foundation for the future expansion and refinement of our culturally responsive multi-level system of support. This marks the third year in a row OASD has achieved DPI recognition at the elementary level.

Lisa Dawes, Director of Special Education/Student Services in the Oconomowoc Area School District stated, "Our schools are very proud of their work in PBIS and the difference it makes for students when staff teach behavioral expectations and recognize students for following those expectations.  As our schools implement PBIS at the small group and individual student levels (tier 2 and 3) we will be seeking DPI recognition beyond the Silver Level."

Congratulations to Greenland Elementary, Ixonia Elementary, Meadow Elementary, Park Lawn Elementary, and Summit Elementary!
