    • December 4th: Community Dialogues (details to come)




    The Blueprint for Quality Schools initiative needs input from the entire OUSD community in order to be successful. There are many ways for you to contribute to the Blueprint plan from now until the final meeting on January 17, 2018.  


    Community members participate in:


    • Retreats: three retreats on focused topics held over summer 2017.


    • Community Dialogues: two sets of meetings (one for the data phase, one for options) in which Advisory Group members will engage the community in conversation and seek feedback. 


    • Blueprint Advisory Group made up of approximately 55 community members that represent the diversity of Oakland's regions and residents. 


    • Small group meetings: Focus groups and study sessions held as necessary or upon request from the community.  These provide time and space for a deeper dive with communities that have concerns.
