Oakland Unified School District
Kindergarten Options Enrollment

One of the most stressful times for me in the past years (actually in my existence as a parent) was registering our eldest for Kindergarten in Oakland Unified School District. I swung (daily...sometime several times during the day!) from elation to depression, anxiety, existential dread, middle-class guilt, all the way to a sense of powerlessness as one of the emerging urban power-poor.

That season is starting again in Oakland. December 10 - January 15
is the options window for the 2009-2010 school year.

One of the best things I did was attend the Options Fair for elementary schools will be held on December 4 from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM at the Oakland Marriott (1001 Broadway Oakland, CA 94607). In addition to the fair, schools at the elementary, middle and high school levels will be conducting site tours and hosting open houses for the community. More details will be available soon.

Look for additional detail on the Parents' portal of the OUSD website http://webportal. ousd.k12. ca.us

We got into a great OUSD School (with much fighting, crying and praying) and are more than content.
