District Strategic Planning is Underway and We Want Your Feedback!
The Owatonna Public School District is currently hosting over 20 community focus groups to kick off the beginning phase of strategic planning for the district.

The strategic planning effort will assist in fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide the school district as an organization.  Effective strategic planning articulates not only where an organization is going and the actions needed to make progress, but also how it will know if it is successful.

Your ideas and opinions are essential in the planning process.  Below is a list of ways for parents and guardians of our students to participate in the district strategic planning process.
