For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Jessica Stewart. I’m a former OUSD teacher, organizer, mom of two young kids (one of whom is headed to kindergarten next year!), and one of the founding members of GO Public Schools. I’ve been working with GO for a decade since we started organizing in the Fall of 2008. This past June, I took on the role of Executive Director of the Oakland team.
Our first in a series of Facebook Live videos sharing our work on the #1Oakland campaign with our community.
Oakland public school families, this is for you! One of the most important jobs we have as parents and guardians is getting our children into the school that best meets their unique needs. In Oakland, you have the power to choose your child’s public school—and you can use it or lose it (time is limited!).
In a perfect world, OUSD and all charters would create a one-stop-shop for families to understand all of the school options available to them and to be able to complete a single application for all the schools they are interested in.
Until OUSD creates this service for families, GO will continue to help you navigate the different processes that exist to make it as easy as possible for you.
Oakland tiene 65.000 niñxs de edad escolar. No estamos haciendo lo suficiente para asegurar que todos nuestros estudiantes estén recibiendo la educación que adapte a sus necesidades y sueños.
