Promoting Equitable Access to our Nation's Schools

Webinar - Promoting Equity & Access with the Aid of Technology
Charles Wilson
Executive Director of Enrollment and Portfolio Management | Oakland Unified School District

Navigating the school market has become increasingly complex as school options are expanding beyond neighborhood and even district schools. While parents may be empowered to choose the best education suited for their child, many families don’t actively choose due to lack of access to school information and due to a complicated, inefficient enrollment process.

Join this webinar to hear first-hand from Oakland Unified School District and learn about the steps OUSD has taken to promote equity and to provide better access to high-quality school information for their community through the use of tools and systems for parents and staff. Discover how an improved family enrollment experience, enabled by policy, data, and technology, OUSD is stemming the tide of declining enrollment, creating a tighter relationship between families and schools, and introducing families to schools they might have never considered.   

Discussion Topics: 

  • Increasing equitable access to quality school options
  • Matching enrollment policy with practice
  • Providing relevant school information to families
  • Using technology tools to your families’ advantage
  • Creating stronger relationships with families

Target Audience: 

This webinar is geared toward leaders and administrators in school districts who are rethinking their enrollment process – from open enrollment and transfers to magnet schools and other choice programs, to a holistic common enrollment system.
