We’ll soon see. The latest progress report for the state-run Oakland school district — conducted by auditors from the Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team — will be released at Wednesday’s school board meeting.
If OUSD makes great improvements in its FCMAT ratings, the state superintendent might decide to restore additional powers to the elected school board. Then again, he might not.
You should also come to Wednesday’s school board meeting, or watch it on TV (Channel 27), if you want to know:
- whether school board president David Kakishiba made school staff pass out flyers promoting a cause of his organization, East Bay Asian Youth Center
- how much the district might spend to build a new educational facility for La Escuelita, Centro Infantil, Yuk Yau Child Development Center and MetWest High School (first reading, no decisions yet)
- charter renewal applications from Leadership Public Schools – College Park and Millsmont Secondary Academy, and a proposal for a new charter: Civicorps Middle School, run by the East Bay Conservation Corps.
If anything else from the agenda catches your eye, be sure to let us know.
