Phase 1

  • In September 2020, we kicked off the community feedback portion of our draft strategic plan process by sharing an RFI. The RFI was for community partners to commit to facilitating online gatherings within the community to share the plan and hold space for discussion and feedback. The following community groups signed up. Additionally, our Board of Education Directors held online groups as well. Groups were held between October and December 2020; we are grateful for everyone who participated!


    • American Association of Yemeni Students and Professionals (AAYSP)
    • East Bay Spanish Speaking Citizens' Foundation (SSCF)
    • IKUNA Group
    • Monarch Lodge 73 (McClymonds Families)
    • National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)
    • Oakland REACH
    • OK Program of Oakland
    • Spearitwurx Foundation


    Additionally, we invited community members to view a presentation and provide their feedback on-line.


    In total, over 800 people provided their feedback on the draft strategic plan.
