Preview - Special School Board Meeting on Partner Charter Schools

In School Board Watch

Tomorrow, the Oakland School Board will review revised charter school petitions from the Ascend K-8 and Learning Without Limits Elementary school communities.

Under the revised petitions, these schools will become district "Partner Schools." This new concept will provide the schools certain autonomies sought in their original charter petitions, however, the schools will remain in a close relationship with the district (i.e., continue to use and pay for many OUSD services such as custodial, nutrition, technology, and maintenance). Should these agreements be approved by the Board, LWL and Ascend will contribute their students' share to the District's State Emergency Loan payment.

The Board will also review a facilities and operations agreement between OUSD and the 100 Black Men of the Bay Area Community School.

We will post notes and video from this meeting later this week
