Meeting 52 Summary



In February 2024, members of the California Collaborative on District Reform convened in Oakland, California, for their second meeting of the 2023–24 academic year. Meeting participants continued attending to issues of coherence discussed in previous meetings, this time sharpening the focus on instruction using the lens of a literacy and language framework developed in Oakland Unified School District (OUSD). Because OUSD recognizes the importance of supporting students in acquiring language skills while concurrently developing their literacy skills, the discussions throughout the meeting emphasized the interconnected and mutually supportive strategies required to support both language and literacy.
