    The Facilities Planning and Management Department works to improve the quality of Oakland schools and school facilities to prepare students for college and jobs, to upgrade science labs, classrooms, computers and technology, improve student safety and security, repair bathrooms, electrical systems, plumbing and sewer lines, improve energy efficiency and earthquake safety as well as modernization, new construction, improvements, upgrades, and replacement projects. In addition, our maintenance and custodial teams provides a clean and safe environment that is conducive to learning for our students. For more information, go to our About Us page.


    We're always working to improve our students' facilities. You can see a list of some of our biggest efforts on our Current Projects page. 


    Building the facilities worthy of our students takes engagement with you. We are currently undergoing our strategic plan called the "Blueprint for Quality Schools". We hope you can get involved and let us know your vision for Oakland's school facilities.
