At Wednesday’s meeting, the Oakland school board hears an update on how the governor’s latest budget proposal (more specifically, its cuts) will affect the local budget. They’ll be filled in on the latest OUSD financials, too.
Also, staff almost completely re-wrote the student “dress and grooming” policy, which was last updated in August of 2004. The document is much more neutral and professional-sounding now, but not nearly as interesting to read.
One item that was axed: “Undergarments shall not be used as outer wear. Students may not wear smooth fabric jogging suits, which are a leading symbol worn by gang members and drug dealers.”
Here is the full agenda.
