As I reported this spring, the Oakland school district’s facilities department took a big hit this year, laying off a number of gardeners, electricians and other workers.
Tomorrow, the department is teaming up with GKK Works and McCarthy Building Companies — and community volunteers — to clear brush and weed at four Oakland schools.
