    Game-changing Opportunity Ticket Proposal Passed UNANIMOUSLY by Oakland School Board!

    The Oakland REACH Team – We did it!!!!

    The Opportunity Ticket created by and for our parents was passed unanimously by the School Board last night!!!! This is a game changer for Oakland families, and such a huge accomplishment for The Oakland REACH.

    We worked tirelessly over the past two years to put ourselves in a powerful position to demand access to higher quality schools for our most impacted families. All of our work and conversations told us that we were about to go through one of the most difficult school years in the past few years – and our families needed to be informed, supported, and ready for action.

    So that’s exactly what we did.

    The Opportunity Ticket will provide the most vulnerable students higher preference for enrolling in quality schools. In the past, our families were left behind and we are ensuring things are now going to be different on “our watch.”

    I’m so proud of you all – and I hope you share this exciting news with all your family and friends.

    There’s lots of fight still ahead, and we’re only just getting started!
