The Oakland Achieves Partnership brings together community organizations with a deep commitment to public education to share expertise and resources to remove barriers to school success, expand educational opportunities, and help all learners to excel from their earliest years through adulthood.
As in past reports, this third annual report on student progress in Oakland allows educators, policymakers, and the Oakland Achieves Partnership to track our progress, target our resources, and hold ourselves accountable.

The report reviews a full range of data on Oakland student outcomes from cradle to career. Wherever possible, it includes data from district-operated schools and charter schools. We have added several new indicators since last year, including kindergarten readiness and Financial Aid Form completion.
Now educators, parents, and others can see at a glance how Oakland students and schools are doing. Our goal is that leaders and advocates will use this data to come together and focus energy and investments where they’re needed to make opportunity a reality for every public school student.
