Lodestar: A new Lighthouse School is coming to Oakland!
OUSD approved Lighthouse’s sibling school, Lodestar, last night with a 5-2 vote.
We received unwavering support from Lighthouse staff, families, board members, Lodestar founding families, community leaders including Kareem Weaver and members of the Oakland Association of Black Educators (OABE) and our very own Oakland mayor, Libby Schaaf, who made an in-person public comment in our support. Also speaking in support were Greg Klein from NGLC and David Silver as the Mayor’s Director of Education. Our past, current and future work is supported by so many outside of our 444 Hegenberger walls.
We are excited to continue our partnership with OUSD in service of our future students and families who deserve to have another high-quality option in our community.
