Recent Building Changes[edit]

The Ottawa-Glandorf High School was expanded and renovated in late 2004 and early 2005. This was Phase I of construction for the district.

In early May 2008, the Ohio School Facilities Commission advised Ottawa-Glandorf schools that the funding for Phase II of their building project is forthcoming. The Ottawa-Glandorf school board has decided to proceed with the master plan approved in 2002. This plan included the construction of two new elementary buildings.

The construction of the Ottawa building will be designed for 450 students and the Glandorf building for 500 students. The Ohio School Facilities Commission supports any building with a student population over 350 to be considered operationally efficient.

The school board hopes to have a bond levy on the November ballot.
