At the only School Board meeting of December, Superintendent Yee and State Trustee Naylor will be reminded of the IOU owed to OaklandEducators. We are still waiting for our 0.05% retro pay.

As the school year completes its first trimester, we need to let OUSD administration and governance know our expectations and hear our suggestions for their Resolutions for 2014.

With a new Bargaining Proposal, Common Core implementation, Local Controlled Funding Formula, a Superintendent search and more in store for 2014, OEA Members must let their voices be heard.

Download the flyer and community petition to demand respect and inclusion of the parents, students, and educational workers in the key decisions of OUSD in 2014.

Email respectful suggestions for New Year Resolutions for Superintendent Yee, School Board Members, any other OUSD department, and Carlene Naylor, State
