Developed by Oakland Education Cabinet’s Attendance Support Committee, the Every Day Counts Toolkit provides ready-made materials that administrators, staff, teachers, and community partners can use for outreach to families and provides tools that schools can use to assess their own attendance practices and guide their improvement.
You can download the toolkit in a series of PDF files below or in one large PDF file.
Studies show that students who enter kindergarten after attending pre-school and pre-kindergarten are more successful in school in all areas, including attendance, reading and math. This summer OUSD will be having a Summer PreK Program. The focus of this program is to help transition students who will be entering kindergarten in the fall who have no prior school experience. Flyers for the program are available in four languages.
