Oakland Unified School District New Board of Education Directors
Dear Oakland Unified Community,
As we have been talking over the past few weeks, Tuesday, November 3 was an enormous election for our city, the state of California, and the United States.
Here in OUSD, as you know, we saw voters pass Measure Y, the bond measure for facilities projects across the District. The funds will mean our team will be able to address overdue issues at numerous schools and facilities, including partial or complete rebuilding of sites, adding new kitchens or multipurpose rooms and district wide technology improvements, COVID-19 safety improvements, and energy efficiency improvements, all in support of our students.
Also very significant for the District is the fact that the seven-person Board of Education will soon have four new Directors. After serving for years on the Board, the four Directors moving on are Board President Jody London from District 1, District 3 Director Jumoke Hinton Hodge, District 5 Director Roseann Torres, and District 7 Director James Harris. After several rounds of ranked-choice voting, there now appears to be a winner in each of those districts. While the results are not final, based on information we have from the Alameda County Registrar’s Office, the four newly elected Directors-to-be are:
District 1 – Sam Davis
District 3 – VanCedric Williams
District 5 – Mike Hutchinson
District 7 – Clifford Thompson
As Board President Jody London mentioned at Thursday evening’s meeting, the District congratulates the incoming Directors. Sometime after the election results become official, we will introduce you to the new Directors in a more in-depth message. They’ll be sworn in on Monday, January 5, 2021.
We look forward to working with the new Directors and the full Board of Education to continue our collective work of fostering an outstanding school district in which our students thrive and are well prepared for college, career and community success.
Dr. Kyla Johnson-Trammell
