WELCOME TO the OA & BCIG Community School Districts - Soon to Become the oabcig community school district      
Welcome to the Odebolt-Arthur and Battle Creek-Ida Grove Community School Districts. 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 as evidenced by the recent report published this past spring of 2017 in the U.S. News and World Report ranking OA-BCIG High School as the 18th best high school in Iowa. We are excited to have the chance to provide you with this information regarding our quality schools, quality staff, quality programs and fantastic students.
The OA & BCIG Community School Districts are two school districts who have been involved in
a Whole-Grade Sharing agreement since the fall of 2009 with a student population of approximately 1,000 students in grades PK-12. On June 27, 2017 the patrons of the two school districts participated in a special election and voted to approve the merger of the two districts. On July 1, 2018 the OA & BCIG Community School Districts will become one district that will be named the Odebolt Arthur Battle Creek Ida Grove Community School District (OABCIG).
The two districts currently share and will continue to maintain a high school for all of the district’s 9-12 grade students in Ida Grove and currently share and will continue to maintain a middle school for all of the district’s 6-8 grade students in Odebolt. In addition there are two PK-5 elementary schools, one in Ida Grove and one in Odebolt and that will continue after the merger on July 1, 2018.
The 259 square mile combined district area is comprised of four communities, home to nearly 6,000 citizens and is ideally suited to those interested in outdoor activities and rural community life. Home to several large manufacturers, our districts consist of small rural communities in northwest Iowa, an area rich in agricultural history and great natural beauty. We thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learn more about our school districts. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.


school song  

Let's stand and cheer, we'll show no fear. Our power and might is ever near.
Our Falcon pride, we will not hide as we bring victory to our side.
We'll do our best to stand the test. Until we win we'll never rest.

Come on all you Falcons, Fight! Fight! Fight! With all your might. (2nd time only: Go OA-BCIG)

Yell for the purple, yell for the silver, yell for the mighty black.
Our team is ready, ready to attack.
Cheer for the Falcons!
Cheer for the Falcons!
Falcons! Fight! Fight! Fight!
(Repeat Verse)
