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 their students. 

For the 2020-2021 academic year, OHS has offered students two options for instruction.  Students choosing Option 1 attend class with face-to-face delivery of instruction on a half-day basis.  In Option 2, students receive 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. 

Community

Oakwood High School, with a student population of 693, is located immediately south of and adjacent to the City of Dayton and the University of Dayton. The City of Oakwood encompasses 2.2 square miles and has a population of approximately 9,000 people. Oakwood is a suburban community with 97.9% of the city being residential.
