Oakland school closures may not happen under new OUSD board (Oaklandside 12/8/22)

[Excerpt] In interviews with The Oaklandside, both Brouhard and Bachelor said rescinding the closures will be their top priority once they are sworn in. Hutchinson and District 3 Director Williams were the two board members who voted against the closures in February, and with the addition of Brouhard and Bachelor, the OUSD board appears to have the four votes necessary to reverse the decision. 

Key Information from Last Week:

- School Board Director Mike Hutchinson introduced a resolution to rescind slated upcoming school closures. It will likely be voted on during the 1/11/23 Board Meeting.

- CA Dept of Justice is interviewing parents impacted by OUSD school closures. If you would like to be interviewed contact Jeremy.payne@doj.ca.gov to schedule an appointment.
