New Student Center and Staff Lounge

The Oakland Tech Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) along with a group of administrators, parents, teachers, and students has collaborated to design a student center and staff lounge in the old library space. The PTSA has raised $80K to begin phase one of this full redesign, but additional funds will be needed for the full vision of this project to be realized. Watch the video below for a preview of this exciting new space:

Phase One will begin in the summer of 2022. The space will be cleared, painted, and have its flooring replaced. Additionally, a new staff lounge space will be created that we hope can be used beginning in the fall of 2022. Phases 2 and 3 will be implemented as funds are secured for completion.

This large undertaking will involve many volunteer opportunities, and success will really depend on our community’s participation and support.

Donors and major volunteers will be recognized on a permanent donor recognition wall at the entrance of the center. We also hope local businesses will want to be part of this exciting project.

This new important space for the school will become the heart of Oakland Tech, and it will only be possible through the efforts of our Oakland Tech Community. Please help with this important addition to our school which will benefit Oakland Tech Students for years to come.”
