Welcome to Ottumwa!

Welcome to the Ottumwa Community School District website. On behalf of the school board, administration, faculty, staff and students of our district, I want to welcome you to explore our district and encourage you to learn more about the many incredible programs and services we offer for students.

Our website is designed to be a quick and easy way for you to learn more about our school district and all it has to offer.  Links for our various schools, students, parents, programs, and the board are easily accessible and have a variety of information regarding opportunities, programming, and information.  We also invite you to visit our district and see the many great things that are happening in our schools as we engage, educate, and empower every student every day!

In Ottumwa, we inspire every student to think, learn, achieve, and care.  As your superintendent, I am fortunate to be a part of a professional learning community which believe every student matters, building relationships is the foundation of success, we meet the needs of all students, data drives our decision making, collaboration and teamwork are necessary for success, and where we believe all students can learn at high levels. 
Please enjoy exploring our website and contact us if you have any questions or need more information.
