Operation Renovate & Innovate

  • Operation Renovate & Innovate

    Operation Renovate & Innovate is Phase One of the District's Long Range Plan; however, it's about more than buildings. We are enhancing our educational philosophy and becoming more innovative in our approach to education.

    Ozark voters will see a question from Ozark School District on the April, 2020 ballot — a $26.5 million no tax increase bond issue. 

    The projects include renovating the Ozark Innovation Center to become a second high school campus, and renovating the District Office to expand Tiger Paw Early Childhood Center. 

    The estimated completion date is August, 2022. Grades will shift for the 2022-23 school year:

    • Tiger Paw Early Childhood Center - Pre-K classes added
    • Elementary - K-4
    • Ozark Middle School - 5-6
    • Ozark Junior High - 7-8
    • Ozark High School + Innovation Center - 9-12  

    The original plan called for the District to purchase an existing commercial facility to remodel for a high school career and technical center; remodel and add a storm shelter to OMS; and remodel the District Office to expand Tiger Paw Early Childhood Center. Due to budget constraints, the new construction at OMS will be moved to a later phase of the project. Renovations and remodeling already underway will continue at OMS.
