    Thank you to everyone that participated in the first phase of the Blueprint for Quality Schools initiative.


    Community members participated in:


    • Retreats: Three retreats on focused topics were held during the Summer of 2017.


    • Community Dialogues: There were two sets of meetings held (one for the data phase, one for options) in which Advisory Group members engaged the community in conversation and sought feedback.


    • Blueprint Advisory Group: This group is made up of approximately 55 community members representing the diversity of Oakland's regions and residents.


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