Dear Colleagues, Partners, and Friends,

When English poet John Donne penned that famous line “no man is an island” in 1624, he could have as easily been writing about the current state of education. Whether by default or design, very little of what we do today can or will be accomplished alone. It takes input, ideas, and support from a wide array of partners who are committed to a mutually beneficial mission: to build great communities in which to live, learn, play, and work.

We are fortunate to be part of an eco-system here in the Ottawa area where that mission comes to life every day. In partnership with our local school districts, the OAISD is helping to forge and leverage connections that make sense for our schools, our students, and our communities. Success in creating these partnerships is born of a willingness to bolster traditional ways of “doing school” with new opportunities for all students to reach their potential.

This annual publication is an opportunity to share that work with you. It is by no means an exhaustive list of our 2013-14 accomplishments. It is, rather, a snapshot of programs and services, key highlights, and financial and human investment made in our mutual success. I hope you’ll take a minute to turn through the pages. I guarantee you’ll find something you didn’t know was happening here, right in our own back yard!

Thank you for your investment in our efforts. We look forward to the work ahead.

Sincerely,

Karen McPhee Superintendent

Dear Community Member,

The often quoted African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child” rings true in many life arenas of which education is one – an important one. The Ottawa Area Intermediate School District is leading the charge in actively involving all areas of the community in supporting our schools and the essential and thoughtful work our area educators perform daily to ensure life success for our students.

During the 2012-13 school year, we introduced Ottawa Area Schools, Doing More. Together. — a partnership between educators, community members and local businesses showcasing the high quality education offered throughout the Ottawa region. The support of this partnership continues to grow as evidenced by the nearly 2,000 Facebook page “likes,” 500 Twitter followers, and over 25 business and community partners.

Some of the remarkable efforts put forth by the OAISD staff to provide teaching resources to local educators and innovative learning experiences for students are the focus of this highlights publication. I encourage you to visit www.doingmoretogether.org to experience stories about the high quality schools in your community and learn about the people behind the numbers who keep our students thriving and in turn our community strong.

Sincerely,

Eric Packer OAISD Board President

Student Achievement• Ottawa Area Intermediate School District provided regional and statewide leadership in aligning existing instructional practices with the Common Core. OAISD led the State of Michigan with over 150 teachers trained and implementing the Michigan Association of Intermediate School Administrators English Language Arts units of instruction aligned to the Common Core.

• OAISD implemented the inquiry based Van Andel Education Institute Question, Prediction, Observation, Explanation and Evaluation (QPOE2®) model across area secondary school science programs helping educators teach students to think and act like scientists.

• The OAISD was integral to the creation of the Reading Now Network, a collaboration between 100 West Michigan school districts focused on improving 3rd grade reading proficiency across the region.

• OAISD developed and utilized an all-new Instructional Coaches Network.

• OAISD Instructional Rounds moved beyond the superintendent ranks within many of our districts to include building leaders and teachers.

• OAISD added Coopersville Public Schools as the fourth member school district to contract with the OAISD for a package of business services including accounting, payroll, and accounts payable.

• Human Resources and Instructional Services staff worked collaboratively to host the first ever OAISD Educator Evaluation Summit. Eleven local district teams comprised of over 75 teachers and administrators attended the daylong event, which provided information and leadership in the region through both philosophical and pragmatic guidance.

• The Ottawa Area Information Technology Consortium (OAITC), administrated through OAISD, supported the expansion of technology in Hamilton Community Schools, Holland Public Schools, Saugatuck Public Schools and Wavecrest Career Academy. Support included network upgrades,1:1 program launches, an increased number of student devices used to deliver curriculum and supporting technology upgrades under 21st Century Bond projects.

• M.O.V.E. International (Mobility Opportunities via Education) established Ottawa Area Center as a model site and recognized them as a standard, statewide and nationally, for incorporating functional movement with learning.

• Ottawa Area Center further developed their School-Wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (SW-PBIS) by creating a behavioral data collection system that allowed more efficient and comprehensive supports.

• Ottawa Area Center implemented a newly designed curriculum focusing on 10 Core Skills in English Language Arts (ELA) and math that students can use in all areas of life. Instruction of the Core Skills occurred in all academic content areas and is aligned with both the Michigan Extended Grade Level Content Expectations and the Dynamic Learning Maps Essential Elements.

• Seventy-four Careerline Tech Center teachers and para-professionals visited eleven local industry partners to learn more about the skills students need to be prepared for future careers and employment in the inaugural Teacher to Industry Day.

• CTC launched a Non-Traditional Student Supports program that identified and assisted students enrolled in a career program specified as being “non-traditional” for their gender. The program provided students with mentoring, presentations by industry role models, and the opportunity to meet with other students for group discussion and support.

Page 7: OAISD Annual Highlights 2013-14

Public Awareness • The OAISD partnered with Kent and Muskegon ISDs to create the West Michigan Talent Triangle (WWMT). The WWMT is working to align school, corporate and community interests and needs in an effort to influence legislative policy.

• The OAISD’s Early On and Infant programs were one of seven programs selected throughout the State, as part of a pilot evaluating service delivery methods for children birth to age three.

• Great Start Readiness Preschool programs increased from 572 four-year-old children in high-quality preschools throughout the Ottawa area in 2012-13 school year to 772 in 2013-14.

• Sheldon Pines School implemented a countywide Child Study Team process to offer continued support to local school districts struggling with students’ disruptive or extreme behaviors. The Child Study Team consisted of representatives from Community Mental Health, the Ottawa County 20th District Circuit Court, and special education and behavioral specialists from local districts and the OAISD. The team utilized many outside agencies and other behavioral experts to provide recommendations for strategies or interventions that help local school districts support struggling students.

• In collaboration with the Ottawa County 20th District Circuit Court, OAISD implemented a new Character Development and Leadership curriculum for incarcerated youth who reside at the Juvenile Services Center. The students received direct instruction on various character traits like integrity, respect, honesty, empathy, leadership and more. This curriculum is aligned with the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts (ELA) and included expository writing assignments, short-answer written responses, and persuasive arguments.

• The OAISD-facilitated Juvenile Justice Institute implemented a new project for students at the end of each marking period, which increased student engagement and used creative ways to help students learn how to apply math and science to real-life situations.

Regional Talent Development• Local businesses, students and master educators teamed up for the third year of the futurePREP IChallegeU program, in which students were challenged to solve complicated, real-world issues at a participating business. During the two-week program, students learned about the inner workings of the businesses and industries that they were partnered with, earned college credit, and were awarded college scholarships.

• Based upon the successful IChallegeU program, IChallengeUth and Sundae School were launched in order to extend the real-world learning experiences to younger groups of students. Twenty-three local businesses, 120 students and 42 master educators teamed up for the inaugural year of the IChallengeUth program, in which seventh- and eighth-grade students were challenged to solve complicated, real-world issues at one of the participating businesses over the course of a week.

The campaign received a Golden Achievement Award from the National School Public Relations Association recognizing exemplary public relations.

• OAISD annually collaborates with Kent and Muskegon ISDs on marketing efforts for all three high school career and technical centers in an effort to realize significant cost-savings. This collaboration saved thousands of dollars for taxpayers and obtained much more advertising reach than the ISDs could have afforded on their own.
