Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ottawa District Curriculum
The curriculum begins at the elementary level with fundamental skills and knowledge. Math and Language Arts have a central place in learning, and students learn building blocks of the problem-solving and communication skills they are expected to develop. In Math, students learn how to perform operations with numbers, look for patterns, develop spatial awareness, and understand probabilities.
To address the diverse needs of students, the district utilizes multiple programs including an extensive special education program, gifted education, life skills training, and the Achievement Program, an alternative education program for middle and high school students. High school students may also elect to take courses for college credit and select among several schools of study, including web/digital communication, computer programming, agriculture, business, marketing, travel, design, family and community service, and health science.

Keeping Informed: Recent Ottawa Educational News
- Community Outreach - Students from Ottawa High School recently participated in the school’s “Make a Difference” day, an annual event that benefits community members. Students baked and delivered cookies to residents of the local nursing home and organized kickball games with COF adults, who all have intellectual and developmental disabilities. An additional project in which students took part was making bowls for the district’s Empty Bowls Annual Program that benefits local food pantries.
- Cyclone Citizenship Cards - Students who dedicate themselves to others through selfless acts are being rewarded at Ottawa High School. Teachers who witness students doing good for others give students a red card, formally known as the Cyclone Citizenship Card. The card states, “You have been recognized as an outstanding Cyclone. Your good citizenship and positive behavior is appreciated.” Students who receive the red card are entered into a chance to win a gift card from a local business.
- Children’s Literature Festival - The annual Children’s Literature Festival was held recently in Ottawa. Third through fifth students from Ottawa elementary schools joined 1,000 other children from throughout the county and had the chance to meet nine authors and illustrators. Students learned how books are written and illustrated for children’s enjoyment. Sponsored by the Franklin County Reading Council, the annual festival was held at Ottawa University.
Chalk Talk: Project Based Learning
Though it is important to prepare students for standardized assessments, they are not a true way to evaluate individual student progress. In our classrooms, students need to demonstrate their learning through more authentic and individual ways. By integrating project based learning into the curriculum, we nurture critical and creative thinking among students. Projects give students the chance to showcase their individual talents and strengths. For example, after students have finished reading a novel, students can complete projects to demonstrate what they have learned about the characters and themes of the novel. Projects could include anything from creating websites and models to conducting interviews or designing movies. The possibilities are endless in ways students can express their learning, and if we incorporate projects differentiated by ability, interest, and learning profile, students will find the success that traditional assessments do not offer.
