What Is OpenOUSD?

OpenOUSD aims to bring greater transparency to the Oakland Unified School District's central office so that the community can fully participate in discussions about how it can best serve our students. OpenOUSD is a project of OpenOakland, a volunteer run group with the mission of increasing access to government through technology. OpenOUSD receives no public or private funds and is not an official OUSD website.

What Are Central Programs?

We define a central program as any activity managed by OUSD's central office rather than individual school sites. For example, a staff member working at a school site but hired by the central office would be considered part of a central program. There are more than 50 centrally managed programs at OUSD.
