2020 Classified School Employees of the Year - Year 2020 (CA Dept of Education)

Here's some amazing news from California's Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tony Thurmond. Out of six total 2020 Classified School Employees of the Year from across the state, two of them come from OUSD. They are Nutrition Services truck driver, William Taylor, Jr. and Frick United School of Language school security officer, Jacqueline Simon.

Thurmond said, "These dedicated employees make sure that kids have healthy meals, safe transportation on school buses, and have someone to talk to during difficult and unexpected changes—helping them stay safe and supported in their lives and in their education.”

For more information about the winners and what the award means, especially during this time of Covid, take a look at the attached press release from the California Department of Education. Congratulations to Ms. Simon and Mr. Taylor!

Freedom of Speech - OEASE and JAHI

OUSD musicians are performing virtually while making a powerful statement about racial justice.

They collaborated on “Freedom of Speech,” a project between the Oakland EastSide All-Star Ensemble (OEASE) and Oakland-based Hip Hop artist, JAHI. OEASE is comprised of high school and middle school jazz musicians from Oakland Technical High School, Oakland High School Wildcats, Skyline High School - Oakland, Oakland School for the Arts and Edna Brewer Middle School.

This project was created with the support of SFJAZZ and The Generations in Jazz Foundation. It speaks to the urgency of addressing racial equality and the systemic problems embedded in American society. These musicians use their song and spirit to fight for what needs to change in our world.

Special thanks go to video editor, Jean Black of Black Camera Productions and audio engineer, Mike Aaberg. #OUSDJams
