• Sanctuary District

    When we say Every Student Thrives! at Oakland Unified School District it means we stand behind our students no matter where they were born or the barriers they have overcome to be here. We cherish the cultural richness in our District and make no exceptions when it comes to including learners with a wide variety of backgrounds and needs.
