Charter Schools

If you have a concern and your child attends a public charter school, you should contact the principal of your child's school.

Charter schools operate independently from the Oakland Unified School District. They have their own Governing Board, Superintendent, policies, complaint procedures and hire their own staff. Charter school staff are not OUSD employees, and we cannot investigate complaints filed against employees at charter schools.  We recommend that you contact the Ombudsperson for your charter school.
