I Have a Concern: A Parent's Guide to Being Heard at School

I have a concern brochure

Thank you for your interest in the Otsego Local School District. On behalf of the school board, administration, staff, and students of our district, I want to welcome you to our website. Our website is designed to be a quick and easy way for you to learn about our school district. Otsego rural school district is located in Northwest Ohio and includes students from four villages (Grand Rapids, Haskins, Tontogany, Weston) and the surrounding areas. Otsego employs 180 people and serves more than 1,600 students from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12. It is a tremendous honor to be the Superintendent of the Otsego Local Schools. We have wonderful students, supportive parents, and a fantastic and hard-working staff that will do whatever it takes for our students to be successful. We also have a very supportive school board that shares the vision of making it the best school district it can be.


What a great time of the year! Each school year brings anticipation and lots of excitement as to what the school year will bring. I hope everyone is having a great summer and had a chance to rest, relax, and reflect. The entire staff at Otsego has been working hard to prepare for the school year and we look forward to welcoming the student body back in August. I would like to thank the maintenance and custodial staff for their hard work and dedication this summer. Our facilities are looking better than ever and I am extremely proud of their work. I would also like to thank the transportation department for the preparation of our buses for the new year. We have all of our buses certified for the new year and there were ZERO violations. Our preventative maintenance program and it is paying off! 


As we begin another school year, we look forward to everyone being part of our Otsego Family and encourage you to become involved. We are very fortunate to have a school district, which we can be proud of, with students, staff, parents, and community members coming together to support our vision and mission. I encourage your partnership and support as we prepare every Otsego student for future success.


In closing, I look forward to another exciting year of watching our students learn, achieve, and grow! I wish you all a successful school year! I look forward to seeing everyone at various events throughout the year.


If you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns, I can be reached at 419-823-4381 ext. 1102 or [email protected]


Go Knights!
