AB1840; Millions of Relief, but are there strings attached?

On October 24th, the School Board invited a presentation from the County Superintendent, Karen Monroe, about how Oakland will receive the funds from the state budget relief bill, AB1840.  There were some key questions that got answered at the meeting, and we’re here to break it down for you in our FAQ.


It’s time to make tough decisions to achieve the financial security of OUSD. Fixing Oakland’s school budget will be hard. But failing to fix it will be harder. GO will continue sharing updates on the implementation of AB1840.  We hope you find this FAQ helpful and share it with your networks by forwarding and sharing on social media.  If you have any additional questions please feel free to send them my way.  We also encourage you to take the OUSD budget prioritization survey.

Until next time, 

Nima Tahai
Director of Educator Leadership
