Equity (Office of Equity)
In 2016, Oakland Unified School District launched the Office of Equity to focus on improving systemic culture, conditions, and competencies across the district in order to better serve children and families situated furthest from opportunity. At OUSD, equity means providing each student with the academic, social and emotional supports they need to prepare for college, career, and community success in the future.
The Office of Equity was established to:
- eliminate the correlation between social and cultural factors and probability of success;
- examine biases, interrupt and eliminate inequitable practices, and create inclusive and just conditions for all students; and
- discover and cultivate the unique gifts, talents, and interests that every student possesses.
