The District would like to help give students access to computers while we are out of school. We want you to be able to keep up with your schoolwork even though schools are closed. This will be for students who do not have a device at home that they can use 2-4 hours a day to access the learning opportunities online.
Do you have a computer at home?
Do you have Internet service at home?
Do you have a personal cell phone number where we can send you text messages with school-related information? What is the best number for us to use?
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are in need of a chromebook for your Dewey Academy student.
On Thursday, March 26th, 2020 Superintendent Kyla Johnson-Trammell & OUSD Staff answered questions regarding Academics During COVID-19
You can find the FAQ sheet here:
Although we cannot replace the value of instruction at school with teachers, we will ensure students can continue learning and study at home. We are aware that not all students have access to technology or internet access at home. Please know that work done during this time is ‘an extension of learning’ and those without internet access will not be penalized. OUSD is also working on an equitable solution for those who will be graduating soon should the closures continue after April 7th. We will continue to report out as new information comes in. Thank you for your understanding.
Students, your educational lesson plans are now available.
Please contact your teacher directly for questions regarding your assignments.
All Dewey Academy students OUSD emails have been activated.
Staff emails are located at the top of the web page under "Teachers" should you have ANY questions.
We understand these can be difficult times.
Our Nutrition Services Department will continue to operate 12 pick-up locations throughout the city where “Grab and Go” breakfast and lunch meals will be available for all OUSD students or families and any Oakland child under 18.
This service will continue while the regional 'shelter in place' order is in effect. To ensure the least amount of contact, students do not need to be present to pick up food.

Dewey Academy is a caring adult community that encourages the growth and development of students by providing social and individual support. We strive to have all students graduate with a high school diploma and to provide opportunities to obtain college and career readiness skills, vocational training, internships, jobs and social awareness in a collaborative environment.
