A new story is unfolding in Oshkosh and its public schools.


Using the Oshkosh4Education Community Agreement as a guide, goals and measurements of success have been developed as part of the OASD Strategic Plan, and are monitored and evaluated by the O4E Education Commission. Each fall, we report on the status of those goals and measurements in our Annual Report to the Community.



This Community Agreement seeks to ensure Oshkosh residents are engaged in the movement to reconnect the public school system with the community’s vision, and strive for excellence through goals and outcomes developed through the Oshkosh Area School District’s strategic plan.

O4E Education Commission

The Education Commission is charged with the evaluation of measureable goals and monitoring progress in the development and implementation of the Oshkosh Area School District’s Strategic Plan. They also serve as a voice for the community and an advocate for our students, faculty and staff.



Throughout the Oshkosh Area School District there are COUNTLESS stories that demonstrate the amazing work of our teachers, our administrators, our staff and our students. The passion cannot be measured. The success cannot be contained. Oshkosh4Education would like to be a part of telling as many of these stories as we can.

Telling the stories of success from within our own schools.
O4E is working to demonstrate why Oshkosh is a district of choice.

For the first time ever, residents of Oshkosh came together in 2013 to create a shared vision for our community’s children, for the value of education, for investment into our economy and for growing as a community. Oshkosh4Education provided the vehicle to collect our individual viewpoints and to build consensus about our schools, and, ultimately a better quality of life to be had by all who work, live and play in the city of Oshkosh. With a Community Agreement in hand, Oshkosh4Education formed the Education Commission. This 27-member volunteer panel of business, community and OASD representatives monitors and analyzes progress made on educational goals. A new story is unfolding in Oshkosh and its public schools. Through community partnerships and communications, Oshkosh4Education is working to advance excellence in our public schools and demonstrate why Oshkosh is a district of choice.

Volunteers from Oshkosh Corporation engineering engage with students at the Family STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Night held at South Park Middle School. STEM nights are held at Oshkosh Area School District middle schools to pique interest in learning more about science and technology. STEM nights are just one example of how Oshkosh Corporation partners with our schools. Patti Andresen-Shew, Director of Education and Talent Development at the Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce had this to say regarding our partnership with Oshkosh Corporation:

Oshkosh Corporation's leadership within the business community is a lynch pin in supporting our career exploration and talent development of students within the community. In addition to STEM nights, they offer youth apprenticeship (YA) opportunities for juniors and seniors who are interested in pursuing careers in engineering. We are currently in the process of expanding to YA’s within manufacturing careers. In addition, they provide speakers and career exploration tours for our high schools, and participate in Manufacturing Day and the Innovation Conference for high school students. They partner in the 8th grade citywide Career Cluster Showcase and Career Pathway Days. And, they financially support all 7th graders attendance to Finance Park. We are very fortunate to have Oshkosh Corporation as a business leader who cares about the community.”
