Dear Oakland Community,
Outlined below are some quick reminders about support for families, enrollment, technology, and food service. In addition, we’re introducing the The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP).
Superintendent Kyla Johnson-Trammell also provided some important updates in her Superintendent Report this week at the Board of Education meeting. Take a look in the video below.
Quick Reminders:
  • Enrollment: If you - or somebody you know - needs a school placement for their student for this school year, our Student Welcome Center staff are ready to help. Please contact us via phone or text at (510) 879-4600 or by email at enroll@ousd.org. Text and email are the quickest ways to get a response.
  • OUSD Technology: If you need to know how to connect to your hotspot, check out this tutorial video from OUSD’s Youth Beat program (in six languages). Everybody who needs a device or internet connection to access distance learning will be provided the tools they need. The main way to get that support is through your school site. Additionally, Tech Exchange has a Hotline you can text at (510) 866-2260 to help with internet access/hotspots.
  • OUSD’s Food Service: Grab and Go meal service continues at  22 meal service sites on Mondays and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Families can still pick up multiple days of meals, and students do not have to be physically present. Important changes are discussed in this video (Spanish). Including: 1) OUSD can now serve only students enrolled in OUSD schools (including Pre-K and Young Adult Program), and 2) You will need a student ID number for each student.  
The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP)
The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (or LCP) is a new tool created in response to the pandemic for districts to explain to students, families and stakeholders how they will provide quality learning opportunities (whether in-person or at a distance) and support the needs of students and staff during the 2020-2021 school year. The LCP outlines the District’s approach to:
  • addressing the unique needs of students who are English Language Learners, low-income, foster youth, students with dis/abilities and students experiencing homelessness,
  • addressing unfinished learning that resulted from extended school closures,
  • supporting mental and social-emotional health of students and staff,
  • providing students with continued access to food, and
  • increasing or improving services for foster youth, low-income youth, and English learners.
The LCP details the use of federal and state funding, including new “learning loss mitigation funds,” to support this work. The LCP is a one-time replacement for the LCAP for the 2020-21 school year due to the unusual nature of learning during this crisis year.
There will be no LCAP (Local Control and Accountability Plan) adopted for this year. The 2021-2024 LCAP will be adopted in June 2021.
Because the LCP must be approved by the Board of Education by Sept. 30, 2020, the timeline to write the plan is incredibly short. We are therefore sharing a proposed plan rather than creating a plan together. However, the LCP content grew out of months of dialogue with students, families, staff, and community partners through town halls, focus groups, surveys, and public meetings. Actions proposed in the LCP will reflect input from the LCAP Parent-Student Advisory Committee (LCAP PSAC) and its subcommittees, as well as from the emerging agreements with our labor partners. The first draft of the LCP will be posted the week of Aug. 17 for additional community review and feedback. 
How can you be involved in the LCP Development?
Over the coming weeks, there will be many ways to provide input into the 2020-21 LCP, including attending any of the following meetings (see OUSD calendar for access details):
  • District English Language Learners’ Sub-Committee (TONIGHT, Aug. 13, 5:30-8:00 pm)
  • Community Advisory Committee for Special Education (Aug. 17, 6:00-8:00 pm)
  • LCAP Parent & Student Advisory Committee (Aug. 19, 5:30-8:30 pm)
  • Foster Youth Advisory Committee (Aug. 25, 5:30-8:00 pm)
  • Committee to Empower Excellence in Black Students’ Education (Sept. 3, 6:00-8:00 pm)
Community members may also provide written comments about specific actions/expenditures. We will provide an update on this when the document is released.
Presentation to and Adoption by the Board of Education
Staff will present the LCP to the Board of Education at  public hearings, dates to be determined. At that time, the District will respond in writing to comments received from the advisory committees.
