Description: 

In 2010, Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) leaders, staff, families, students, and community partners launched an ambitious effort to transform the district into a community school district. Since 2014, OUSD has partnered with the Gardner Center to support their efforts to assess, enhance, and scale their community schools work. These three briefs offer descriptive profiles of OUSD’s community school implementation model in elementary and middle schools that represent both mature and more recent implementation. The profiles are based on interviews of the principal and community school manager at each school site, and are informed by lessons learned in prior years of the Gardner Center’s long-term study of the full-service community school implementation in OUSD.
