Cohort 2 - East Oakland

  • Cohort 2 - East Oakland Updates

    At the Board of Education meeting on Aug. 28, Superintendent Johnson-Trammell will be making two recommendations:  

    • Merging School of Language (SOL) and Frick Impact Academy on the Frick Campus; and 
    • Expanding Melrose Leadership Academy (MLA) across Maxwell Park and Sherman campuses.


    The main advantages of these recommendations are:


    Opportunities to Improve Quality:

    • SOL’s dual language, late entry program would support both native English speaking students and the large newcomer population at Frick.
    • Increasing the number of students served by MLA’s high-demand dual language program including, special education students and newcomers.


    Opportunities to Improve Sustainability:

    • Repurpose SOL Campus (Old Rudsdale)
    • Increase enrollment at Frick campus to sustainable size
    • Reduce number of schools by one
