Did you know that 48% of the student population at OPUSD are students who live outside of the district in the surrounding areas of Oak Park? That’s almost half of the student population commuting Monday through Friday to attend the excellent, high-performing schools in the city of Oak Park. One thing we love about OPUSD is that it’s open to everyone who wants to attend – a District of Choice (DOC) school system. Without our DOC students, OPUSD schools wouldn’t be the distinctive, diverse, and exceptional institutions that they are today!
Because of that, Oak Park Education Foundation hosted our first mixer on March 16th for our Simi Valley & Moorpark DOC families to show our appreciation for their dedication to education. It was a lively afternoon filled with conversation for the adults and fun St. Patrick’s Day activities for the kids!
OPEF looks forward to future events with our DOC families to not only get to know them better, but also to partner alongside them to build a better future for our children.
A special thank you to DOC parents, Phil & Reese Loos, for spending their time putting this beautiful event together and graciously opening up their home.
“Education is the principal agent for change for the next generations to shape a better future. An educated society will make good decisions and do the most to change income inequality. An investment in the Oak Park Education Foundation offers more than ten times the output in results. In fact, it is priceless!”
