The GO Public Schools Advocates Oakland community engages in a rich and unique endorsement process during school board election cycles. We engage hundreds of Oaklanders to interview school board candidates and read their candidate questionnaires to get their perspective on which candidates we should endorse. Pictures and artifacts from previous endorsement processes can be found here, here, here, and here.
We invite any and all 2018 candidates for the Oakland school board to participate in our process, which includes a community interview day on Sunday, August 5th and this candidate questionnaire which is due on July 29th.
Please reach out to our Executive Director Jessica Stewart so that we can send you an editable version of the candidate questionnaire and make plans to include you in our Candidate Interview Day. Individual emails have been sent to all known candidates directly.
