Oakland city leaders ask governor, lawmakers to help save schools


In response to possible school closures and mergers in Oakland, city leaders are asking the governor and state lawmakers to bail out the school district. 

OUSD revealed a plan last month impacting 16 schools to help balance their budget.

Oakland City Council President Pro Tem Sheng Thao, along with three other city leaders, are not only asking for OUSD’s debt to be eliminated but also for funding mechanisms based on attendance to be changed.
