Last month, we shared an enrollment resource with you all to help you begin to navigate your options and begin considering the best school choices for your family. As Oakland public school parents, you have the power of choice in determining what school is best for your child, and applying for that school (or schools)! We wanted to follow up with more information to assist you as you continue through the process.
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.
