Review School Enrollment Family Support Center Re-Opening Plan

We support families who need help with school enrollment. We want to re-open our Family Support Center after being closed due to COVID-19 and ensure all compliance so that everyone is protected. 

Posted July 27, 2020

Background & Context

Our organization aims to support Oakland families who have been historically underserved throughout the enrollment process. Whether because of a technology barrier or language access, Oakland Enrolls is here to support families who need to explore their public school options ahead of the new school year. To do this best, we aim to re-open our Family Support Center after being closed since the Alameda County shelter-in-place order began in March. We want to ensure all compliance so that Oakland families and Oakland Enrolls' staff are protected.

Immediate Problem

By having a safe reopening plan, our staff will be able to reopen our Family Support Center and serve Oakland families in-person as they aim to enroll in school for the fall.

Work & Deliverables

- Review of Alameda County and other pertinent legal requirements for office reopening - Review of the Alameda County template we filled out - Assistance in creating a site-specific plan that serves as addendum to the county template - Assistance in creating a training presentation for staff - A call with Executive Director and Office Coordinator if needed for context/questions

Oakland Enrolls

Oakland Enrolls is a non-profit organization based in Oakland, CA that is committed to helping Oakland families choose the best Oakland public schools for their children. Oakland Enrolls aims to empower Oakland families to make informed choices about their public school options and make the process of selecting and enrolling in a public school easy, efficient, and equitable. Our portal provides access to information about all Oakland public schools, allowing for easy comparison and exploration. We also run a family support center where we help those looking to apply to Oakland public schools. The staff of the center support families in-person, by phone, by text, and by email. Oakland Enrolls launched in 2016, providing the first ever online TK/K-12 public school application portal for Oakland families. Now in our fifth year, we are excited to bring more improvements to the family experience. We are currently developing a re-opening plan for our Family Support Center to ensure we are able to serve all families, especially those who are most in need of assistance.
