The State of Ohio has released the 2013-2014 Report card. I am very proud of what our students and staff accomplished last year. We continue to show improvements in several areas. The teachers, staff, and administration are committed to helping all students of Otsego Local Schools reach their highest potential. This is only one data set that we use to measure the success of our students and staff. As you recall, a five year strategic plan was developed last year that has four core initiatives: Increase Academic Excellence, Community Engagement, Enhance Student Culture, and Financial Strength. This strategic plan will serve as a “road map” to future planning, resource allocation, staff development, and decision making over the next several years. We are very excited about this plan and the possibilities it provides our students, parents, and community to improve the education at Otsego.

Otsego LSD Strategic Plan
The objective of our Strategic Plan is to guide the district as we work towards creating a school system that is progressive and focused on 21st Century Skills, while providing opportunities that challenge all children within our schools.
Otsego's Strategic Plan has Four Primary Goals:
Online Registration Coming Next School Year for Current Otsego Students — New Students Click Here
We are very excited to announce an online registration data system for the upcoming school year, powered by InfoSnap. The system is a secure and green process, which allows the district to verify all student demographic, emergency and medical information for your child prior to the start of the new school year. This system will save us time and money and will be allow us to keep up to date accurate information. The system will also allow you to electronically sign the annual permission forms for school district policies. In short, this online process replaces hard copy student registration and permission forms that your child brings home on the first day of school.
When it is time to fill out the online form, you will receive a letter/email from Otsego with instructions on how to access the system for your student(s). Letters will be mailed home next week. The letter will contain a link/instructions and a secure “snapcode” that links directly to your student’s information. You will create an account, that you will use each year for this process, and submit a form for each student in your family. To make the process easier for families with multiple students, you will have the option to copy all generic family information to all other students in your family.
We would appreciate all families to take action and complete these forms as soon as possible after receiving the letter/email. Your student’s registration will not be complete until the forms have been submitted. If you do not have access to the Internet, we will have computers available at our back to school days on August 12th from 9-2 and August 13th from 1-7. If you have any further questions, please contact a Building Office or the Central Office.
Otsego Local Schools would like to reconnect with the outstanding Alumni of Otsego, Weston, Haskins, Grand Rapids, or Washington Township. If you could take a few minutes and fill out the brief survey we would appreciate it. Thank you!
