Oakland Adult and Career Education: Looking Ahead
We would like to thank our teachers, staff, volunteers and partners for a school year of program stability, student achievement and instructional rigor. Some highlights are:
  • 101 GED graduates! Our GED students are meeting the challenge of the content and online format of the new GED 2014 tests.
  • The integration of Academic Conversations in Adult Education instruction, in alignment with the District’s initiate of “literacy across the curriculum.
  • “Bridging the Digital Divide in Oakland’s Family Literacy Program” Click Herea myON Spotlight. myON,, is an individualized online reading program. Based on the success in the Family Literacy class at Fruitvale Elementary School, all families in the Family Literacy program throughout Oakland have the opportunity to read with myON this summer.
  • Project SEARCH will graduate eight interns from Children’s Hospital. Project SEARCH is a partnership with East Bay Innovations, providing year-long internships to young adults with disabilities.

We are looking ahead and planning for the future of OACE.

  • OACE received a grant from the Y&H Soda Foundation for strategic planning. Some initial guiding questions include: What kind of Adult Education program do we want to build? How will we coordinate more effectively within OUSD?
  • The Northern Alameda County Regional Consortium for Adult Education is working with staff and stakeholders to better coordinate Adult Education services with Adult Schools and the Peralta Community. Chris Nelson is coordinating the Consortium.
  • OACE is engaging in the renewal process of our accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Elizabet Wendt and Roger Chretien are leading our Self Study Process.
Lastly, we’d like to share a 5-minute, “A Theory of Change” (Harvard),

It articulates the importance of building adult capacity to improve student outcomes.

We look forward to continuing our work together to serve adults in Oakland in the years to come.
