ORGANIZING, ADVOCATING, AND TAKING ACTION FOR EQUITY IN OUSD 

© 2019 • Equity Allies for OUSD

The Equity Fund for OUSD Schools is raising $150,000 to donate back to our highest-stressed OUSD schools.  Our work on the Equity Fund reflects the following beliefs:

  • We need to prioritize funding and resources to our most stressed schools

  • As a larger community we need to be invested not just in our own children's school--but in all our children

Equity Index

The Equity Index helps us prioritize the schools facing the highest stress. Ratings are based on the following indictors.

  • Neighborhood Environment: stress, food security, and community health factors in the neighborhood surrounding the school.

  • Staff Preparedness: Teacher retention, % of new teachers

  • Student Demographics: Percentage of students enrolled in school lunch program, with learning disabilities, and english language learners.
