A Master Plan Citizens Committee for the Oakland Public Schools.
California Univ., Riverside. Western Regional School Desegregation Projects.
This proposal outlines the objectives and functions of a citizens committee for the formulation of new programs and new and improved facilities for the Oakland Public Schools. The task of the committee will be to assist the Oakland Board of Education in defining goals and setting educational priorities for the years ahead, the plan being envisaged to be operational from April 1971 through June 1972. Guidelines are set down for participation on the school site planning committee and on the city-wide master plan citizens committee; additional guidelines are noted for the make-up of the master plan coordinating committee and for the establishment of task forces on curriculum and instruction, school buildings, community resources, decentralization, school finances, and any other areas the committee feels should be investigated. Also included is a set of 17 questions and answers to them on a multiple approach for deepening parent and community participation in Oakland's public schools, as well as a newsletter published by the Master Plan Citizens Committee in September 1971.
