A CHALLENGING YEAR WITH MANY ACHIEVEMENTS A L E T T E R F R O M O S A’ S N E W E X E C U T I V E D I R E C T O R , L I S A S H E R M A N - C O LT Dear OSA Supporters, Welcome to Oakland School for the Arts. It was in March of 2020 that we began remote teaching and learning. No one would have imagined at that time that we were on the brink of a triple pandemic of COVID-19, the economic crisis and the ongoing acts of racism throughout our country. Even with these incredible challenges, we continued to make grand achievements. • 99% of our Class of 2020 graduated and of those students, 95% applied to 2/4 year post-secondary programs. 100% of students who chose to apply to post-secondary programs received acceptance letters. • We are maintaining a 98% attendance rate while in remote learning. • Over 200 Chromebooks and 115 hotspots are being provided to students in need. • A year-long Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) plan has rolled out that examines all aspects of how the school operates and will result in creating a leadership role and an equity rubric for the school. • OSA is undergoing the accreditation process through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Our school community is taking part in this process. • We are designing a 3-year Strategic Plan for 2022-25 that focuses on setting goals, benchmarks and an action plan to our four pillars: Academic Excellence, Artistic Excellence, Community, and Sustainability. Our school community is taking part in the design process and adopting metrics for the plan to hold ourselves accountable. • We served 90 students in grades 5-8 who attend Oakland Title 1 schools through OSA’s Step it Up recruitment program. • We developed over 50 community partnerships with Oakland businesses, community not -for -profit organizations and educational organizations. Even as a confluence of unparalleled circumstances has become a part of our everyday lives, we are forging ahead with the OSA mission on behalf of our students, faculty, staff and community, to make OSA a leader in equitable instruction through the arts. I will continue to lead OSA with the vision that former Governor, then Mayor Jerry Brown, had when he opened OSA nineteen years ago. None of this would have been possible without your support. Thank you. It is an honor to serve as Executive Director for OSA. I hope you will enjoy reading our FY19-20 Annual Report. Thank you for your continued support for OSA.

Lisa Sherman-Colt Executive Director


LOOKING TOWARD 2021 AND BEYOND In Winter of 2020, OSA Leadership came together to draft new Mission and Vision statements to reflect the new charter.

MISSION Oakland School for the Arts is a diverse and inclusive public 6-12 charter school that blends immersive, robust arts with comprehensive academics, providing integrated opportunities for collaboration, expression, and personal growth.

VISION OSA students will be creative and critical thinkers who demonstrate a commitment to equity, community, collaboration, and self-reflection. Through meaningful engagement with pathwayintegrated curriculum and work-based learning opportunities, graduates will be resilient and ready for college and career. Alumni will exemplify the essential value of the arts in all they do.

C H A R T E R R E N E WA L OSA recently took a dramatic step in becoming a more diverse place to serve students. In our most recent charter renewal in January 2020, we removed the requirement for students to audition to attend OSA. This action will allow the school to reach students who may not have the formal background in the arts but would thrive in the OSA community. The school actively recruits through Step it Up, a program that provides underserved youth from local Title 1 elementary schools with specialized instruction in any OSA art program.

JUSTICE, EQUITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION In the Spring of 2020, the OSA community came together. Families, OSA staff, and students attended rallies and in solidarity marched together for a common PL A C E H Ocause— LDER IMAGES Black Lives Matter. We are proud of our teachers and students who expressed themselves through the painting of striking murals on our building and in the Uptown neighborhood. We take a stand as a school community to say that we do not tolerate racism. Resources were committed for the 2020-21 school year to the rollout of an expansive, year-long Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion plan designed to examine all aspects of how the school operates. This work will result in creating a leadership role as well as an equity rubric for the school that will be implemented in our next Strategic Plan.

UNIFYING LEADERSHIP This year, Dr. Dianne Woods stepped into the Vice Chair role on OSA’s Board of Directors. And, while we have always had parent representation on our Board, we have now enshrined this value in our charter to include 3 voting seats for parents of current students and 1 non-voting seat for a student representative. OSA welcomed Lisa Sherman-Colt as Executive Director in March of 2020. As the Executive Director of Oakland School for the Arts, Mrs. Sherman-Colt’s responsibilities include leadership and accountability for the success and quality of all educational programs; management of personnel; oversight of financial planning; management of communications; maintenance of relationships with OUSD and oversight of OSA’s operations. Mike Oz, former Assistant Principal, is now all-school Principal. Katy Zaugg, former Dean of Students is now Assistant Principal, and Anna Deroos moved into our Dean of Students role. Arlyle Schultz moved into a Head Counselor role. OSA welcomed Sara Ordaz as OSA’s new Special Education Coordinator. Their all-school leadership will allow OSA to be more responsive to student needs and school-wide demands.

NEW ADVISORY PROGRAM In 2019-2020, the school piloted a new Advisory program which included a special period each week designed to support students and connect the greater school community. Teachers and staff were each designated an Advisory class, and overall there were 53 Advisory groups. The OSA Advisory program promotes meaningful relationships between staff and students while providing a structure to integrate all students into our school community. Advisory is designed to help balance academic success with emotional and physical well-being for all students. Structured meetings include academic conferencing, community building, social/emotional learning and college and career readiness.

INTERSESSION OSA’s second-ever Intersession in January 2020 was a great success. All students and staff spent the day fully immersed in new activities, experiencing different communities through exploration, team building, community service or personal growth opportunities. These activities help students learn more about their community, explore art and history, engage in new physical activities, and develop personal goals. Students chose from over 40 different projects and activities that were planned based on interest, grade level and local community resources. A few of the offerings included: a tour of Wired Magazine, a field trip to Oakland Museum of California, a bike ride across the Golden Gate Bridge, an adventure on Angel Island, a Design Squad workshop, a self-care workshop, skateboarding with Principal Mike Oz, and so much more! Intersession is indeed a large all-school and community effort. Special thanks to our community partners, our faculty and staff for sharing their experience and personal interests with OSA students, and OSA donors for helping make this day accessible for all students!

The program provides students in grades 5 through 8, who reside in the City of Oakland and who attend Title 1 schools that lack arts education, with free instruction in one of several different arts disciplines: Visual Art, Theatre, Vocal Music, Instrumental Music, Digital Media, Dance, Literary Arts and Production Design. Participants learn foundational and technical skills, and are taught by professional artists, teachers and student assistants. They also learn audition techniques and portfolio-building skills. 10

DONOR HIGHLIGHTS ANNUAL FUND OSA’s generous Annual Fund donors raised a remarkable $452,930 for the school. The Annual Fund is the backbone of fundraising at OSA, garnerin critical support for faculty salaries, arts supplies, equipment, and technology. It helps us to close the gap between public funding and what it costs to provide each student with a unique OSA education. We saw 54% family participation in the Annual Fund in 2019-20. Opposite page, top: 2020 Jazz Combo “The Messengers” performing at the Annul Fund Kick-Off Concert in October 2019; opposite page, bottom: A look from Sweet’s Ballroom onto The Uptown. OSA partnered with The Uptown Nightclub to host our Annual Fund Kick-Off fundraiser.

BANDCAMP OSA is honored to be supported by Bandcamp, whose headquarters is across the street from the school in downtown Oakland. For many years, Bandcamp has helped to underwrite OSA’s Step it Up program, and has generously provided their space to host fundraising events for OSA. In January 2020, OSA hosted a live “Off the Table” production to help raise funds for the school. OSA’s “Off the Table” is a take on NPR’s Tiny Desk series. It is filmed, recorded and produced by a team of OSA students to highlight the powerful creative culture of Oakland youth. Pendarvis Harshaw, host of KQED ARTS Rightnowish, compared OSA’s Off the Table to NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series, “but even better” [because], “you’re getting the chance to look at the next wave of talent out of the Bay Area.” OSA Student, Oliver Tuttle was the artist featured the day Harshaw recorded the Rightnowish episode.

G I V I N G T U E S D AY OSA students and faculty came together in support of Giving Tuesday—a global day of giving—on December 3, 2019. Together, the community raised $25,000 to go toward Chromebook purchases. This effort helped us significantly in getting closer to our goal of having a 1:1 student/Chromebook ratio.



OSA CREATES FROM HOME In response to the global pandemic of COVID-19, OSA created the “OSA Creates from Home” Emergency Relief Fund and raised over $200,000 to help recover some of the revenue lost due to canceled fundraising events, performances, exhibits, and other traditional appeals. The idea was that even though our building was closed and the lights out, “the show must go on!”. During this time, the school swiftly transitioned into remote teaching and learning. Left, and opposite page: While in shelter-in-place, students created a range of work that reflected their experiences of being in remote learning. Examples include visual artwork that was produced, complex pieces strung together in Instrumental Music, fashion zines, virtual Digital Media galleries, and virtual Theatre performances and Literary Arts readings.

STUDENT HIGHLIGHTS S C H O L A R S H I P AWA R D Class of 2020 Ajai Kasim Wilborn (right) was awarded a GUCCI Changemakers Scholarship. It goes to 2 diverse graduating high school seniors who plan to study fashion design at an accredited four-year college or university. The award is up to $20,000 per year for four years for both selected scholars.

ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT Chachi Delgado, 2019 graduate (Theatre) plays the voice of the main character in the Disney Plus Short, Loop , which focuses on a girl with autism and a chatty boy learning to understand each other. The short was released on Disney+ on January 10, 2020.
