    The Asian Pacific Islander Student Achievement (APISA) Initiative lifts up the diverse API populations in Oakland for every student to thrive, achieve and succeed in OUSD.

    The APISA Initiative will:

    1. Build a strong network of staff, families, youth leaders, and community groups throughout Oakland supporting all API students to achieve and thrive.

    2. Ensure that OUSD’s systems, infrastructure, and school content are serving and reflecting the diversity of our over 45 Asian and Pacific Islander populations.

    3. Lift up the stories, experiences, and histories of our API students to inform and create empowering, safe, supportive, and inclusive community schools.
