3 Introduction Every school has its own story to tell. The context in which teaching and learning takes place influences the processes and procedures by which the school makes decisions around curriculum, instruction, and assessment. The context also impacts the way a school stays faithful to its vision. Many factors contribute to the overall narrative such as an identification of stakeholders, a description of stakeholder engagement, the trends and issues affecting the school, and the kinds of programs and services that a school implements to support student learning. The purpose of the Executive Summary (ES) is to provide a school with an opportunity to describe in narrative form the strengths and challenges it encounters. By doing so, the public and members of the school community will have a more complete picture of how the school perceives itself and the process of self-reflection for continuous improvement. This summary is structured for the school to reflect on how it provides teaching and learning on a day to day basis. Page 1

Courses such as Chemistry, Algebra I, Geometry, English, Government and others that are required for graduation are offered. OSD has a strong vocational program that is supported by Career Tech. Business Technology, Family and Consumer Sciences and Welding classes are offered onsite. OSD also offers a school to work program called Occupational Training Opportunities for the Deaf.

7 Notable Achievements and Areas of Improvement Describe the school's notable achievements and areas of improvement in the last three years. Additionally, describe areas for improvement that the school is striving to achieve in the next three years. As the only four day school week school for the deaf in the United States, OSD has taken the lead on implementing changes that allow for increased academic achievement. The longer school day allows for all students to obtain needed tutoring, remediation, homework assistance, and more one on one reading assistance. In addition, the four day school week has allowed for more time for student participation in the community around Sulphur and in their home communities. The cost savings for a four day school week have also been a very positive outcome. OSD is continuously looking for ways to excel and serve in it's capacity as the state resource center on deafness. The OSD outreach program is growing. During the school year, OSD provided 27, 959 Direct services, 2,842 Consultations and evaluations, 11, 368 services to families, 10, 436 services to schools, and 3, 313 services to various organizations.
