Board of Education
The OUSD Board of Education is the elected policy-making body of the public education system within the City of Oakland, California. The Board of Education is comprised of seven Directors who have the primary responsibility of ensuring that every student served by the District is well-educated for college, career, and community opportunities upon graduating from an OUSD school.
The Board seeks to provide the public with information about the public school system goals, objectives, and activities, including its weekly legislative agenda, strategic long-term goals, and other activities affecting education within the City.
