Our #SchoolAfterCOVID work is informed by YOU

Over the past months we’ve engaged 150 Oaklanders in conversations to better understand their hopes and dreams for Oakland education. With their feedback in mind, our team is excited to launch: the #SchoolAfterCOVID campaign to support our schools to reopen, recover and reimagine school as we know it.

Our Work

Team Fellowship

An exciting opportunity for groups of people from schools to come together and redesign their systems from the ground up. The fellowship will use Liberatory Design to bring students, families, teachers, and administrators together to ensure those who are most impacted by these plans are designing them. We will continue to focus the conversation on quality and shifting power to families by design. If you're interested in learning more about the #SchoolAfterCOVID team fellowship, email yanira@gopublicschools.org and/or express your interest here.

Talleres para equipos escolares

Una oportunidad emocionante para que grupos de personas de las escuelas se reúnan y rediseñen sus sistemas. Los talleres utilizarán Diseno Liberatorio para reunir a estudiantes, familias, maestros y administradores para garantizar que aquellos que se ven más afectados por estos planes los diseñen. Continuaremos enfocando la conversación en la calidad y en transferir poder a las familias por diseño. Si está interesado en obtener más información sobre estos talleres de equipo relacionados a #EscuelaDespuesDeCOVID, envíe un correo electrónico a yanira@gopublicschools.org y / o exprese su interés aquí.

Numbers and Narratives

After a year of tremendous disruption to our schools, our families, and our communities, we'll be releasing new data reports to better understand the toll of the pandemic on Oakland education, lift the experiences of families, and make recommendations to drive recovery efforts.

Números y narrativas

Después de un año de tremendas perturbaciones a nuestras escuelas, a nuestras familias y a nuestras comunidades, publicaremos nuevos informes de datos para comprender mejor el impacto de la pandemia en la educación de Oakland, traer a luz la experiencias de las familias y hacer recomendaciones para impulsar los esfuerzos de recuperación.

Budget

Oakland Unified is receiving nearly $300 million in one-time-use COVID relief funds to spend over the next three years. It's a huge amount of money (almost half of the district's annual operating budget). We will advocate for these funds to be used to accelerate student learning and to ensure we never go back to a "normal" that failed far too many Oakland families.

Presupuesto

OUSD está recibiendo casi $300 millones en fondos de ayuda COVID de un solo uso para gastar durante los próximos tres años. Es una gran cantidad de dinero (casi la mitad del presupuesto operativo anual del distrito). Abogaremos para que estos fondos se utilicen para acelerar el aprendizaje de los estudiantes y para asegurarnos de que nunca volvamos a la “normalidad” que les falló a demasiadas familias de Oakland.
