1. 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. 


        1. Do you have a computer at home? 

        2. Do you have Internet service at home? 

        3. 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 if you are in need of a chromebook for your Dewey Academy student.

  • OUSD Superintendent Announces All Schools Will Remain Closed for Rest of 2019-20 School Year

    Oakland, CA --
     Superintendent Kyla Johnson-Trammell is announcing that all Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) schools will remain closed for the remainder of this school year for in-person instruction. This is in alignment with the statement from Alameda County Superintendent of Schools, L. Karen Monroe that all K-12 schools in Alameda County remain closed for in-person instruction for the rest of the 2019-20 school year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

    Our students and staff will continue our continuity of education plans for the remainder of the school year.  We will continue to improve how we serve our students during this time.

    We are working to determine the full impact of this decision, including exploring alternative plans for celebrating our 2020 graduates, promotions of all other grades, whether summer school may be offered, and the loss of instructional learning. In the meantime, we continue to finalize plans to deliver technology to our students and families to help enhance the learning students can do at home.

    As soon as possible, the District will send further communications on what this means for OUSD. 

    Thank you for your patience as we work together to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • 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.
