COVID Relief Impact Fund Report
In partnership with the Oakland Ed Fund, our COVID-19 Relief Fund has raised more than $2.5 million thanks to 2,000+ generous donors. Read more about the impact of the COVID Relief Fund and how these donations have been allocated.
Learning HubsOur learning hubs continue to operate and serve a limited number of our students. We launched them focused on specific populations (unhoused students, students in foster care, and a limited number of students receiving special education services). Participating students are accepted through a referral from their school team’s Coordinated Service Team (COST) process. We are currently working on launching more learning hubs across the District.
