On Saturday, the Oakland school board is scheduled to vote on the superintendent’s five-year strategic plan — the product of 14 task forces and, according to the document, some 350 task force and community meetings.
The meeting begins at 9 a.m. in the board room at 1025 Second Ave. It’s supposed to run about two hours.
How did you take part in the process? Does this document reflect your ideas for improving OUSD? What will it take for this plan to materialize?
In case you missed it:
The Bay Area Parent Leadership Action Network sent out a news release saying it expected all four of its recommendations to make it into the final plan. They are:
- Adopt and follow standards for family engagement to make meetings and events more accessible and parent-friendly
- Improve training for parents who serve on school site governance councils
- Establish a Family Engagement Advisory Council to give regular feedback to the district on ways to better involve the community
- Hold monthly meetings with parents and youth in each of OUSD’s three regions to improve communication.
