Getting it done...


Board Activity

The OUSD Board of Education is engaged in important policy development. Please See Below.

Site Planning

It is Site Planning Season!

We are tracking schools to be certain they are on track to complete all retried steps for 100% Board Approval by end of June.

Not all schools are on track!

This requires central supports! Please consider if you have a role in ensuring schools complete high quality site plans and meet deadlines along the way.

Teacher Inquiry

One of the most powerful methods of school improvement is Teacher Inquiry.

This is where teachers engage in reflection & study of their teaching effectiveness. Schools from across Oakland & the East Bay will share their Teacher Inquiry at Mills College on March 23, 2017 from 5-8pm.
