Welcome to Oaklawn Elementary

Oaklawn Elementary is located on the east side of Menomonie just south of highway 12/29 and adjacent to the community's industrial park.  The student population is approximately 400 with three classrooms at each grade level kindergarten though fifth grade.  The average class size is 22.  Oaklawn Elementary houses the district's elementary program for students with significant emotional and behavioral disabilities.  On the Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Examination (WKCE) Oaklawn students overall perform at or above the state average.  The 2012-13 school year was Oaklawn's first year implementing a school-wide Title 1 program.

Oaklawn Elementary's staff continue to be actively engaged in Response to Intervention (RtI) and  Positive Behavioral Interventions Strategies (PBIS) initiatives.  The two initiatives work toward a common goal of creating a safe and supportive school environment in which teachers can teach and students can learn.  Oaklawn staff members strongly promote the belief that appropriate social-emotional and behavioral skills are equally important to academic skills for the success of students not just in school, but in life.  The school's master schedule provides for daily grade level collaboration and intervention time.  Teaching staff  focus on student assessment data to design prescriptive interventions which in turn support increased student achievement.  Students and staff benefit from an active Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).  The PTO's fundraising efforts and active involvement in school-wide Title 1 planning have been crucial in maintaining quality programming and resources for students and staff during a time of financial constraints. 

Thank you for your interest in Oaklawn Elementary School.  We welcome your inquiries, as well as visits, to our school during the normal business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday when school is in session.

Lori Smith, Principal
