Full Service Community Schools Strategic Planning for Oakland Unified School District

Urban Strategies Council   (Oakland)

2010 - 2011

Urban Strategies Council facilitated, with the Oakland Unified School District, a nine-month planning process with the multi-stakeholder Full Service Community Task Force.  We produced a structural framework that became the foundation of the school district’s five-year strategic plan to develop full service community schools at every site with a strong academic core and integrated focus on youth development, family support and engagement, health and social services and community development.  The Board of Education adopted the strategic plan in June 2011 and we have since been asked to take on intermediary responsibilities, particularly in planning for systems alignment and sustainability.
