The Community Agreement is the next step in a process that aims to build a shared vision of public education and, ultimately, a better quality of life in Oshkosh. Oshkosh4Education held more than 50 small-group listening sessions in January and February. From these sessions, five major themes emerged of priorities for public education. Those priorities were ranked in order of importance during a community-wide survey conducted in March.

The presentation will include goals and action steps for those five priorities that were created by a panel of community members and Oshkosh Area School District employees during a strategic planning session held in April.

Oshkosh4Education is a continuation of the 2009 Visioning and Branding process, directed by a committee that includes representatives of the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation, Oshkosh Area School District, Chamber of Commerce, City of Oshkosh, Oshkosh Convention and Visitors Bureau, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, Fox Valley Technical College, the Oshkosh Northwestern, Lutheran Homes of Oshkosh and Propel.

This is the largest community engagement project in support of public education undertaken in Oshkosh. It is supported by the Community Education Fund of the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation.

The Oshkosh Area Community Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization created by and for the people of Winnebago County, Waushara County, Green Lake County and Ripon. Through charitable giving, the Community Foundation strives to make our communities thrive. For more information, please call 920-426-3993.
