If you have an opinion on the superintendent’s “Full Service Community Schools” vision, if you’re not quite sure what it means, or if you want to offer your feedback before a plan is etched in stone, you might want to check out an upcoming conference at the Cesar Chavez Education Center in Fruitvale.
The Youth and Family Conference will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at 2825 International Boulevard, in the new building that houses Think College Now and International Community School.
Superintendent Tony Smith has divided the district into three elementary and middle school regions and two high school networks. This particular event zeroes in on Region 2 (list of elementary and middle schools here — checking on high school networks), but everyone is invited to attend.
Region 3 conference: Saturday, Feb. 12 at Reach Academy, 9860 Sunnyside, in East Oakland.
Region 1 conference: Saturday, March 12 at McClymonds High School, 2607 Myrtle Street, in West Oakland.
