Otsego Career Access Network

GHS has partnered with Otsego Career Access Network (OCAN) to open the doors to higher education for every student in our school. Data show that Otsego County students are better prepared than the majority of the students in Michigan to pursue higher education, but attend at a lower rate. During the week of January 30 - February 3 we will be surveying the class of 2023 to find out more about their post-secondary plans. The school and OCAN will use the findings from this short survey to create strategies that are designed to increase college and certificate based program enrollment for Otsego County students. Students will not be asked to identify themselves in the survey and all responses will be anonymous.

Please contact the school if do not want your student to participate in the survey.

The survey is attached for your review.


Please keep in mind that messages and deliveries are to be from parents only.

To protect the privacy of our students and keep classroom disruptions to a minimum, special deliveries such as flowers, are discouraged during school hours.

Thank you for your cooperation.
