School mergers or consolidations are one potential result of the Blueprint for Quality Schools process that is taking place now. Would school mergers help us to move more students into the stronger programs that OUSD has to offer? Would it help us to concentrate resources in a smaller number of schools? What can we learn from Oakland's history with school mergers and consolidations? What can be done to mitigate harm to students during the process of school mergers and consolidations?
We will look at the history of school mergers in Oakland, to learn from the experience of others. Full list of speakers to be shared soon.
