Mission Statement: Okaw Valley Middle School is committed to assisting in the transition of our students from the elementary to secondary school academically, physically, and socially.
Thanks to everyone that has supported us here at OVMS for the past 7 years. You know who you are but I want you to know how important that positive support was to Michele and I as we attempted to do our best for the students, staff, and community here at Okaw Valley.

    I would also like for you to join me in welcoming  Mr. Ross Forlines as he begins a new chapter in his educational career as the Principal of OVMS with the 2015/2016 school year.

    I wish all of you the best in the exciting years to come, and know you will all continue to work at making Okaw Valley the BEST district possible!!!!!

On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, UChicago Impact will administer the third annual Illinois 5Essentials Survey, a unique opportunity for teachers, students, and parents to have a voice in improving their schools. From January 12 through March 13, 2015 teachers, students, and parents will be asked to take a 20-30 minute research-based survey to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their school’s learning environment. 

This survey is based on the Five Essentials for School Success, an evidence-based framework developed by the University of Chicago. This framework identifies how school performance on five factors or “essentials” can indicate important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. 
The 5Essentials areas are:
  • Effective Leaders
  • Collaborative Teachers
  • Involved Families
  • Supportive Environment
  • Ambitious Instruction
