Upcoming dates to note

June is going to be a busy month.

June 3 is the next special ed Community Advisory Committee meeting. 

The Alameda County BOE has until 7/17 to decide on the AIMS charter (whether to uphold OUSD’s decision to revoke the charter). They have meetings during which that can happen: 6/11 and 6/25.

May 29 OUSD BOE selects District 4 candidates to interview to replace Gary Yee. 

June 5 they will identify final candidates

June 12 is the deadline for making their appointment. Unless they heed the public attempt to open up the process, the new D4 representative will be announced at the regular board meeting. 

At the same June 12 the board will have the first reading of the OUSD budget (more about dates here). 

June 26 is the final reading.

  • A coding error

    and June 30th, last day of our champion Dr Smith.
    Then, his first day unemployed… poor boy. Sure.

  • J.R.

    Just like a bad penny, he will turn up somewhere(watch out Chicago) with big promises and big money contract in hand.

  • Elementary Teacher

    Note that among the upcoming dates is not voting for an agreement with Oakland teachers, continuing the practice of unfair bargaining over the past ten years. We will end another year without an agreement, yet are still expected to put in unpaid time writing report cards, closing up classrooms, prepping over the summer and to be ready to come back in August.

    I thought Supt Smith really wanted to give teachers a decent contract before he left. A 1.5% raise after 10 years is insulting. We do not want a one time bonus; we need a real salary increase. Anyone on their bargaining team who thinks that OUSD teachers should be the lowest paid in Alameda County should leave education. That 1.5% increase does nothing to bring us into parity with other nearby school districts.

    Here is a link that explains the reasons why,(the data is old but the problems and their solutions remain the same).

    There is also one other issue that was not covered, many of the higher paying districts do not include medical coverage, the employee must purchase their own.

  • In and out

    Promises, promises… and more administrators to keep the flattering and back-scratching going. I think it was Katy, shortly before leaving, that exposed that next year their numbers are increasing.
    There is no accountability whatsoever. OUSD operations are an insult to common sense and those who vote for this board of shenanigans may think that they are playing a videogame or something…
