Now’s your chance to see a school at work.
An organized tour might not offer as candid a snapshot as if you dropped in one morning without the herd of parents, but it’s probably much better than going on hearsay alone.
(The above photo, by Tribune photographer Laura Oda, was taken during a 2006 tour of Crocker Highlands Elementary School.)
The School Options window, during which families select their top school choices, opens Dec. 10, but families have until Jan. 15 to submit their paperwork.
Unlike previous years, OUSD has decided to limit the Options Fair to prospective elementary school families. It’s from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Dec. 4 at the downtown Oakland Marriott, 1001 Broadway. Here is the flier.
Have info about public charter schools or private schools? Feel free to post it.
