Franklin Families,    
         I am happy to share that I will be returning as Principal of Franklin Elementary on Monday, May 1st. I was on leave as we waited for County and State approval of my administrative credential. My credential is now fully cleared and I am excited to continue the work of supporting teaching and learning in all our classrooms. I will be meeting with interested families on Monday, May 1st from 2:00-3:00 in the library.  Please join me if you have any questions or would just like to talk.
         We have a busy week ahead: May 1-5 is Teacher Appreciation Week. I am thrilled I will be at Franklin to appreciate our staff and encourage you to find little ways to celebrate our amazing teachers.
With appreciation,
Principal Ingrid

What is the School Performance Framework?

The School Performance Framework (SPF) is like a report card for your school. It is a comprehensive system to help schools focus on strengths and areas for targeted improvement. 

The SPF guides schools and the community in setting priorities for improvement with specific groups of students. The report uses color-coded tiers based on the school’s levels of performance in the categories. The SPF guides schools and the community with improvement—aligned to the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The SPF is used by the district to determine specific interventions and support and define the amount of autonomy school receive to make decisions.

​Reports will be released annually for each OUSD school in the fall beginning in 2016. Oakland charter schools will receive their own SPF ratings in future releases.
