Two years ago, to apply to Oakland district and charter public school options was a challenging paper-chase that disadvantaged low-income flatlands families the most. There were over 25 different applications and timelines, no online process, and few physical locations to get information. Now there is a one-stop-shop for families to explore and start applying to all Oakland public schools – EnrollOak.org.
Explore all Oakland public school options using the Oakland School Finder, apply to 95% of charters with one application, and get connected to the District’s new and improved enrollment process for District schools. And the School Finder now includes the new Oakland Public School Report Card, with data on quality for every public school.
Every one of these is at the heart of a thriving Oakland public education ecosystem that serves all children well. What are you most thankful for this year in the world of Oakland public education?
