Our Work

School Board Matters

Core Belief: We believe that effective, significant, and lasting change requires great leadership. 

What We Do: We will help elect and hold accountable highly effective school board members through improved and expanded accountability and transparency tools, community engagement, a redesigned membership program, stronger candidate evaluation rubrics, and leadership cultivation.



The Three Pillars of School Board Matters


Improved and expanded transparency and accountability tools, including a vote tracker, which will be used to track how board members vote on specific issues over time.


GO Oakland Advocates has launched a membership program. Our membership will be the vehicle by which we create place and space for community to gather.

Leadership Cultivation

Expanded opportunities will be available to GO network leaders interested in learning what it takes to be a school board member, how to work on a school board, and how to coordinate civic engagement activities.
