From the Superintendent

Welcome to the OAISD's web site.

Whether you're a parent, student, educator, community member, business representative, or web surfer, we're sure you'll find the site full of important and interesting resources.

This site represents the diversity and complexity of our mission. We serve students of all ages, infancy through adult, of all abilities, in a variety of ways...from face to face instruction in the classroom to digitally delivered learning on our wide area network to professional development in our conference and technical center and at local district and business sites. Our students include children, teachers, educators, workers, and many others.

We truly believe that learning is life long. We continually look for ways to enhance education for our students, in our schools, and in our communities. Our number one goal is to improve student achievement and we have a track record of success.

I hope you'll visit the site often, as information is added and updated continuously. Please do not hesitate to let us know if we can help you better understand our role in supporting the educational excellence of our schools and communities.
