1 Quality Schools Working Group Purpose Statement and Workplan June 2014 Draft 4.1 Overview The Quality Schools Working Group is about unifying and unleashing the power of the Oakland community to transform our lowest performing public schools. We seek to support and extend the OUSD Quality Schools Development Policy s aspiration of building a school system that ensures excellence and equity across Oakland within both our traditional and charter public schools. We aim to bring Oakland education stakeholders together, build parent power, strengthen community accountability, and jumpstart the transformation of five low performing schools per year for the next five years creating 10,000 high performing pre K to grade 12 seats by Mission Statement We are local leaders and educators partnering to support the work of dramatically improving public schools in Oakland by ensuring alignment of leadership, organizations, and resources in support of school communities. Guiding Values and Beliefs 1. Urgent, coordinated action in our lowest quality schools, not incremental improvement efforts, squared with realism about our capacity to deliver on promises in a meaningful timeframe to families. 2. Student needs come first, over any education governance structure or adult interests. 3. Community responsibility and shared leadership, as no one entity or agency can do this without meaningful partnership with families, partner educators, and community based organizations. 4. Prioritize equity, in order to end historical lack of access for low income families of color, through equalized funding, access to information, facilities, and conditions by neighborhood, subgroups, and school level pre K to grade 12.

2 5. Humility about the reality of this work and depth of our challenges, acknowledging Oakland s intricate history of successes and lessons learned through previous initiatives as well as the complexity of the current political reality. 6. Shift culture to enable families to deeply shape and define school transformation and decision making. 7. Support people because working conditions are student learning conditions, and high stress and low pay result in turnover, which undermines progress. 8. Develop leaders at every level of our system and schools. 9. Grow what works by expanding existing successes within the district, traditional and charter public schools, and our community. 10. Use and be open with data, evidence, and research to inform strategy, guide decisions, and promote engagement and accountability. What We Can Do Efforts to transform our lowest performing schools need to be shaped and led both from the bottom up (parents, students, teachers) and top down (elected officials, system level leaders, principals, etc.). Successful strategy development and implementation will require meaningful co construction and deep partnership with school communities, board members, district leaders, charter leaders, community based organizations, other public agencies, and elected officials. In collaboration with these members of Oakland s educational ecosystem, we are working together to provide the additional capacities needed to make real our vision for quality by We envision our most significant values as the following: 1. Coordination of activities. Convening multiple stakeholders to align priorities, policies, and strategy in support of the implementation of Tier III school transformations. 2. Alignment of resources. Coordination of partners, school communities, charter and district leaders to access and appropriately align resources to support Tier III schools. 3. Specialized expertise. Access to expertise and professional networks with leaders whose organizational priorities and competencies support various aspects of the quality schools work including family leadership development, talent pipelines, direct operation of schools, etc.

3 4. Building political will. Ensuring Oakland s political climate supports the sustainability of school improvement and transformation work over the long term through the engagement of elected leaders, educators, families, and voters. 5. Communications. Sharing information and perspectives with diverse Oakland audiences through multiple channels. Potential Projects Preliminary Workplan Quality Standards and Metrics: Engage relevant stakeholders to strengthen alignment around school quality standards, key student outcomes, and baseline for growth targets by individual students as well as schools. Transformation Support: Identify funding for FY to build district and community capacity (program incubator, leadership fellowships, and/or innovation funds) to support school level transformations in partnership with labor, charter school, and community organizations. Support School Transformations: Align resources among our coalition organizations to support the transformation work at Brookfield, Frick, Castlemont, Fremont, and McClymonds. Assets Management: Convene table to support implementation of Asset Management Policy to ensure all traditional and charter schools have equitable access to quality facilities, and decisions are made within context of plan to ensure quality in all neighborhoods. Special Education Services: Secure funding to convene and staff table to address equity issues, data, and structural needs to ensure quality special education services to students in traditional and charter public schools. Common Enrollment and Data: Secure funding to convene and staff table with relevant leaders to implement common enrollment and data structures, and to address equity issues related to expulsions, suspensions, attendance boundaries, and student mobility among traditional and charter schools. Prioritize System Level Initiatives: Support OUSD school board, Superintendent, and district staff in prioritizing, aligning and resourcing system level initiatives in support of school improvement, transformations and expansions.
