An Oakland Story.
Wallace, Rosemma B.
Reorganization was undertaken by the Oakland Unified School District in an effort to improve student achievement. To facilitate the Instructional Strategy Plan, the Instructional Strategy Council was formed which consisted of persons representing business, labor, community, and school employee organizations. Technical Task Teams were established to develop objectives, curricula, and materials for teaching specific subjects and basic skills. Instructional Support Teams were organized to facilitate more efficient delivery of services to schools. Reorganization at central offices resulted in the development of an Office of Curriculum and Instruction which was later phased out by the creation of a Division of Learning. A Learning Expectations Assessment Program was organized. Future plans include redefinition of responsibilities within the Division of Learning, constant monitoring and upgrading of the quality of inservice training, interfacing with other educational units, and weaving together of instructional supports.
