In partnership with the Oakland Unified School District’s Office of Equity: African American Male Achievement, African American Female Excellence, Oscar Wright and the African American Education Task Force proudly invites you to honor excellence within our African American student scholars.

To applaud our students’ achievements during this academic year, this celebration includes all students in grades 6-12 who have maintained one or more of the following during distance learning:

  • Perfect attendance
  • 4.0 GPA
  • Resilience, as nominated by school staff, but includes students navigating remote learning with a disability, housing insecurity, or juvenile justice experience

There are 168 Oakland Tech scholars who have made this year’s Academic Excellence Award Ceremony. Qualifying students will receive their certificates in the mail next week.

These young scholars will be honored on Monday, May 10, 2021 during our Virtual Honor Roll Celebration. The virtual ceremony will be held from 6:00  to 7:00 p.m.
