  • Parent Survey

    The Octorara Area School District is requesting your participation in a survey on homework. During the district’s Comprehensive Planning process, OASD prioritized one of its goals as establishing a district system that fully ensures consistent implementation of standards aligned curricula across all schools for all students.

    The district is implementing several strategies to accomplish this goal. One of these strategies has been to form a K-12 Grading/Homework committee. This committee will seek to establish grading/homework guidelines for grades K-12. These guidelines will effectively align grading practices to what students know and are able to do. The current homework policy will be revised, and grading and reporting practices will be revised to effectively communicate student progress toward grade level standards.

    In order for this to take place, we need stakeholders’ valuable feedback. Parents, teachers, and secondary students will be asked to take the survey. This survey assesses your perceptions of homework as it pertains to your child.

    Please click on the link below or access it on our website at https://www.octorara.k12.pa.us/ in the right-hand column under Comprehensive Planning.  Please complete the survey by Friday, March 2, 1018.

    We understand that families have multiple children in the district, however, you only need to consider one child as you complete the survey.

  • Fiddler on the Roof

    Octorara Senior High School Performing Arts Department will present the Broadway musical Fiddler on the Roof, based on Sholem Aleichem stories with book by Joseph Stein, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and music by Jerry Bock. The opening performance will be on Thursday, March 1 at 7:00 p.m. in George Daller Auditorium. Performances will continue March 2 and 3 at 7:00 p.m. with a matinee Saturday, March 3, at 2:00 p.m. Tickets may be purchased from the our eventbrite website: Fiddler On The Roof Eventbrite tickets

    Fiddler on the Roof follows the life of Tevye, a Jewish dairyman, and his wife, Golde, and their attempt to maintain their Jewish and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon their family’s lives.

    Set in the small Jewish village of Anatevka, Russia, in 1905 during a turbulent time of Tsarist rule, the story is told with wit and humor but remains a powerful statement about the evils of prejudice and persecution.

  • Comprehensive Planning

    Throughout the past months the administration has been working on revising the Comprehensive Plan for the Octorara Area School District.


    The administration invited the Chester County Intermediate Unit to perform a curriculum and technology audit to inform their work on the Comprehensive Plan. Additionally, the administration sent out a survey, listened to focus groups, and did work with teacher leaders to advance their work.


    As this work advances, we will keep a link to current draft copies of the Comprehensive Plan and a link to the Chester County Intermediate Unit audit report for easy access.
