Congratulations to the New Principal of OHS, Rebecca Brooks

Go OwlsWhile we are sad to see Mr. Terry Allison retire, we welcome Mrs. Brooks to the Oscoda High School team.  Mrs. Brooks is sad to be leaving the Richardson Elementary School but will still be involved there to some degree.

"We are very grateful for the service Mr. Allison has provided."  Scott Moore, Superintendent of Oscoda Area Schools states, " We are confident that Mrs. Brooks will do an outstanding job as she has an intense commitment to serve our students, staff and community.  We are fortunate to have such a skilled educational leader that will be at the forefront of our organization."

Mrs. Rebecca Brooks has an extensive background in the education system. She graduated from Saginaw Valley State University with her teaching degree. She is certified to teach K-5 all subjects, 6-8 ELA, 6-8 Math, and 6-8 Social Studies.  After graduating from SVSU she taught in the Genesee County area for two years before moving up to Oscoda Schools for a teaching position where she taught for the next six years. During her teaching career she attended SVSU and completed her Master's Degree in K-12 Principalship. In the 2016-2017 school year she began her administrative career as a middle school assistant principal.  Mrs. Brooks served in this role in Tawas for two years.  Then in August 2018, she returned to Oscoda Area Schools as the RES assistant principal.  She has been serving in this role three years. Over the past winter she  completed her Education Specialist degree in Central Office Administration.  This will be her fourteenth year in education, as she takes on the Oscoda High School Principal position.  Principal Brooks state, "Outside of my professional career I also have two children that attend Oscoda Schools and we love being part of the Oscoda Schools community. "

"In my first year being the Oscoda High School principal I hope to get acquainted to the new position, the students/families, and the staff.  This year COVID-19 brought a new challenge to the schools as we worked through many different challenges. Going into next year we have to make sure our students are where they need to be credit wise for our high schoolers and are making good gains in the middle school.  Next year will be about trying to get back to normalcy as much as we can and making sure our students are where they need to be academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally after coming off of the pandemic year." states Principal Brooks. She goes on to say in an interview done on June 2021 that she is  "looking forward to working with even more staff members, more students/families, and getting to know more community members.  Some of the students know me from being either their teacher or being the RES assistant principal so it will be neat to see them continue on through their high school careers."
