WELCOME TO the OA & BCIG Community School Districts

Welcome to the Odebolt-Arthur & Battle Creek-Ida Grove Schools. We are proud to provide you with information regarding our schools and district. Though our newly redesigned website remains under construction, we are confident that as you visit our organization through these web pages that you will find OA&BCIG to be committed to providing students with outstanding educational programs in an exceptional environment.

OA&BCIG Schools are two districts involved in a Whole-Grade Sharing agreement with a total student population of approximately 1,000 students. The two districts share a high school that has all of the 9-12 grade students attending high school in Ida Grove and all of the two districts 6-8 grade students attending school in Odebolt. In addition, there are two PK-5 Elementary Schools, one in Ida Grove and one in Odebolt. The 259 square mile combined district area is comprised of four communities, home to over 6,000 citizens and is ideally suited to those interested in outdoor activities and rural community life. Home to several large manufacturers, our districts consists of small, rural communities in Northwest Iowa; an area rich in agricultural history and great natural beauty.
