Your participation is important!

The Speak Up National Research project annually polls K-12 students, parents, and educators about the role of technology for learning in and out of school. The survey provides participants with the opportunity to have input into local district technology decisions, state level initiatives, and federal policies and programs. Please help guide us by completing the survey.

We welcome you to our school!  OCES is an exciting place to be! This website will provide you with information about our school, students, instructional program and community.  We are pleased with the continual success of our students and their teacher's instructional commitment.  We are fortunate to have a strong foundation of support from our parents, the community and the Board of Education. Without their support, the degree of success we have achieved would not be possible.
