• OUSD Teams up with KTVU to Celebrate The Class of 2020 & All District Students


    Oakland, CA -- For the Class of 2020, this graduation season has been anything but normal. Because most schools are using online tools to hold their commencement ceremonies, OUSD wanted to do something additional to celebrate our graduating seniors and all students who are rising in grade despite our challenges. Oakland-based KTVU Channel 2 was eager to support our students, as well, so we came to an agreement that together, we are creating a special celebration for broadcast entitled, “Rising Together: OUSD Class of 2020.”


    This special graduation/promotion celebration show will air on KTVU Channel 2 the day after all the individual school graduations and promotion ceremonies have concluded. It will include speeches from students from across the District, including our new graduates, and rising 5th and 8th graders who will be heading to new middle schools and high schools, respectively, in the fall. Despite the pandemic and shelter in place order, our students have done remarkable work to overcome the obstacles this situation has thrown in their way, whether they were kindergarteners or seniors, or in any grade in between. So, we want to make sure we celebrate all of them for their hard work and dedication for reaching the next level in their educational careers.

  • Dear Oakland Community,


    Due to shelter-in-place, all work permits for Oakland students will be processed centrally through an online process. As of today, the process has changed from being based in Google Forms to a more user-friendly and streamlined interface.

    For Summer Work Permits, students can request Work Permits on or after May 29, 2020. Summer permits expire on August 16. As of now, we anticipate work permit applications to still be processed electronically at that time. Applications for schoolyear work permits will be accepted on or after August 10, 2020. 


    As of today, OUSD is not processing work permits for Charter and Private schools. If you have questions or need support please contact
