Dear Oak Grove Staff and Communities:
I want to thank everyone in the Oak Grove School District community for their input and support during the school consolidation process. The closing of schools has an impact that ripples through the entire District and has an effect on us all. At the Special Board Meeting on March 1, 2018, the Board took action to approve boundary reassignments based on the closure of Glider and Miner Elementary Schools, and also took action to approve relocating the Two Way Bilingual Immersion (TWBI) Program at Del Roble Elementary School beginning with the 2018-2019 school year. With these changes, every effort was made to keep communities together and to ensure the safety of our students.
Families impacted by the reassignment of boundaries will receive notification of their new home school and any grandfathering options available to them. It is anticipated the school locator feature on our website will be updated by March 7 for new enrollment, and registration will begin on March 8. The intra-district request window will open on March 12 and will close on April 12. Please visit our website, www.ogsd.net, for information on new boundaries approved by the Board at the March 1, 2018 meeting.
Transition teams have been established and are meeting on a regular basis to assist in making this a smooth and successful transition. We will continue to provide updates during the transition process including activities and events being held at schools to merge traditions and all things that make all of our schools great. I am confident, working together, we can build inclusive, innovative and strong communities to provide our students with an excellent educational experience.
Jose L. Manzo, Superintendent
