As a result of a proposal written by metals teacher Mr. Alejandro Rodriguez, the Oswego High School Metals Department was granted $18,700 from the Tooling and Manufacturing Association (TMA). This money will be used to purchase two lathes, which are large machines used to shape metal. This grant will allow the program to thrive for many years to come.
As students at Oswego High School adjust to being back in school, they are also adjusting to new guidelines in the cafeteria in order to lower the risk of transmission of COVID-19. However, staff members are struggling to enforce protocols in the lunchroom because of the limited space and large number of students. 
The new policy is much less restrictive than previous years, and now explicitly states that “dress code enforcement does not reinforce or increase marginalization or oppression of any group based on race, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, cultural observance, household income, or body type/size.”
Over the past two years, Oswego High School and other high school sports around the country have experienced referee shortages. In hopes of solving the problem,  OHS will offer a new officiating course for the 2023-2024 school year.
