Developing a framework with common metrics for measuring school quality across all of Oakland’s public schools, and communicating publicly about quality. Rolled out School Performance Framework (SPF) for OUSD; developed pilot with volunteer charters. Current deliverables: “Test drive” SPF with data from several volunteer charters; collect charter feedback; create a common district-charter SPF that includes comparable measures; charter schools provide SPF data for a non-public “soft rollout” of a common SPF. Upcoming meetings: Jan 27, Feb 24, Mar 24, Apr 28.
