Post date: Mar 14, 2016 11:16:34 PM

In March 2016, working with our partners at the Oakland Public Education Fund and Oakland Unified School District, we announced our $2,100,000 investment in six Oakland public schools over two years through the Next Generation Learning Challenge in Oakland grant program. The selected schools are:

  • Lodestar
  • Redwood Heights
  • Roosevelt MS
  • Urban Montessori
  • Urban Promise Academy

This announcement is a major milestone for the NGLC in Oakland program as we seek to engage school (re)design teams of leaders, teachers, parents, students, and community stakeholders to create 3,000-5,000 high quality, innovative, personalized, student-centered seats by 2020.
