OUSD Academic Milestones

Oakland Unified School District - Academic Milestones

See how your child is progressing throughout the school year in literacy and math.

These milestones name critical literacy and math skills for each grade PK-5 that build on each other and prepare students for achievement in the next grade and beyond. The milestones do not cover all of the content students need to learn, but should be prioritized by educators, parents, and caregivers in supporting all children to become proficient readers, writers, and mathematicians.

The OLC worked with OUSD on the development of the literacy academic milestones in 2020.
