All Students and Families
at Franklin and in OUSD. 

     When we say Every Student Thrives! at OUSD it means we stand behind our students no matter where they were born or the barriers they have overcome to be here. We cherish the cultural richness in our district and make no exceptions when it comes to including learners with a wide variety of backgrounds and needs.  

     That is why in the wake of the election, which caused fear in immigrant communities across the country, we stand strong as One Oakland. The City of Oakland has renewed its resolution as a City of Refuge and the OUSD Board of Education also renewed a similar resolution, affirming our commitment to doing everything possible to ensure students and their families are safe at school regardless of immigration status.

     It’s important to know that Oakland is a Sanctuary City and OUSD is a Sanctuary District. We do not ask for or require proof of legal immigration status upon enrollment, nor is any such information gathered by a school. Hundreds of undocumented, newcomer and refugee students are thriving in in our schools with help of the Office of English Language Learners and Multilingual Achievement (ELLMA) and we want to keep it that way.

     Together, we will continue to exemplify the OUSD Core Values of Students First, Equity, Excellence, Integrity, Cultural Responsiveness and Joy in support of all of our students.

They receive 5-10 minutes at each station to improve their fitness, motor skills, muscle strength, communication skills and have fun!

Stations include:
--Sit ups
--Hot lava hop scotch  (like jumping jacks but better)
--Yarn ball toss
--Bean bag toss
--Jump rope
--Franklin fitness PE art
--Fitness bowling

Students love the stations and are getting in great shape during the rainy season.

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.
