A new year and lots of new things happening in Oakland Unified! Two opportunities happening NOW will shape district policy for the foreseeable future. Whatever you think about these issues, let your voice be heard.
1. Oakland Education Association Forum on Article 12
Tuesday, January 13 at Westlake Middle School (2629 Harrison Street) from 4:00-6:00. Under discussion are potential changes to Article 12 (assignment transfer, seniority rights, mutual match). Please come to learn and share your experience!
2. Oakland Unified School District Strategic Plan Committees
Apply by January 15. Superintendent Wilson is seeking wide representation from Oakland teachers and community members to serve on committees to turn his Pathway to Excellence plan into a reality. Three committees are forming:
- Effective Talent Programs
- Accountable School District
- Quality Community Schools
The Letter of Interest (application) is short and the commitment if you are chosen will be 10 meetings over a 6 month period.
Make this the year you share your knowledge outside the classroom!
