Facilities Planning and Management
The Facilities Planning and Management Division oversees the capital improvement program for the Oakland Unified School District. This work is funded by bond measures that include Measure B, $65 million, Measure J, $475 million, and Measure Y, $735 million. We work with an Independent Citizen Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) to help ensure that all spending fulfills the bond measure mandates approved by Oakland voters.
The Facilities Department manages over 100 buildings and 680 portables, totaling 5,841,891 square feet. Beyond the upkeep of classrooms, offices and gymnasiums, we are responsible for the maintenance of playgrounds, gardens, and athletic fields and courts. On average, our maintenance operations team addresses and responds to over 20,000 work orders per year.
