COVID-19 STatement

Oakwood High School ceased face-to-face instruction March 13, 2020 and transitioned to off-site instruction March 16, 2020. During remote instruction, teachers used a variety of platforms and applications to provide asynchronous and synchronous instruction to students. 

For the 2020-2021 academic year, OHS offered students two options for instruction.  Students who chose Option 1 attended class with face-to-face delivery of instruction on a half-day basis for the first three quarters and full-day instruction for fourth quarter.  In Option 2, students received instruction through a third-party online vendor.

The cancellation of Ohio's State Tests in spring and summer of 2020, due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis, and ordered school-building closure impacted students' abilities to meet graduation requirements in future years.  HB 164 - Section 12 allowed districts the flexibility to substitute final course grades for the corresponding high school end-of-course examination to meet graduation requirements.
