Many of you have received either a phone call or email with instructions on how to complete OUSD’s online registration. Every year MetWest hosts an in person registration that includes all of OUSD documents as well as of our MetWest documents. However, due to Covid-19 we will have to complete registration virtually, online. We will be sending out information regarding our MetWest document registration within the next few weeks. But for now, if you are able to, please complete the OUSD portion online via https://www.ousd.org/domain/
Saludos familias de MetWest. Muchos de ustedes han recibido una llamada telefónica o un correo electrónico con instrucciones sobre cómo completar la inscripción en línea de OUSD. Cada año, MetWest organiza las inscripciones en persona que incluye todos los documentos de OUSD, así como nuestros documentos de MetWest. Sin embargo, debido a Covid-19 tendremos que completar el registro virtualmente, en línea. Estaremos enviando información sobre nuestro registro de documentos de MetWest en las próximas semanas. Pero por ahora, si puede, complete la parte de OUSD en línea a través de https://www.ousd.org/domain/
You matter. Your dreams and passions and interests matter. Your skills and knowledge and growth matter. Your smile and joy matter. Your pain and rage matter. Your successes and failures matter. You matter to us. You matter to your family and your friends and most importantly, to the world. Your life matters. Your future matters.
We promise to never underestimate you. Youth have always led the way in freedom movements: from the Black Panther Party to the Dreamers, from the Greensboro Sit-ins to the Climate Strike, from the Little Rock Nine to the East LA Walkouts. When the youth demand justice and liberation, the world listens. We see young people leading the marches in Oakland and San Francisco with well over 20,000 people stepping up to your call for action. Your energy and passion are changing our world. We promise to follow your lead.
We recognize that education and schools have been sites of oppression and trauma, particularly for indigenous students, Black students, and students of color. We commit to striving toward and providing you with an education for liberation and justice. This means:
Another world is possible. The current uprising is revealing exactly that. We promise to continue teaching and sharing skills and tools you can use to shape the world and future you want. We will work alongside you, every step of the way. Be safe, take care of yourself and each other.
