Supporting Student Success in the Orinda Union School District

As one of the highest performing districts in California, the Orinda Union School District (OUSD) has a proud history of academic excellence. Our award-winning elementary schools and middle school offer an outstanding education, improve the quality of life in our community and protect the value of our homes.

Our Orinda schools are between 45 and 60 years old, and aging facilities need updates for the continued health and safety of local students. Education facilities need upgrades to improve safety and security, increase energy efficiency and add air conditioning so schools are not forced to close down when temperatures get too high.

Lafayette, Moraga and Walnut Creek schools have all been updated and now Orinda schools are falling behind. To ensure local students can keep pace, our classrooms need improvements for high-quality instruction in core academics, including math, science, technology, engineering, reading and writing. These classroom upgrades will help prepare students to compete in high school, college and 21st-century careers.

In order to maintain excellent education in Orinda classrooms, the OUSD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to place Measures E & I, a $105 million package of school improvement bond measures, on the November 6, 2018 ballot.

Supporting student achievement is a community-driven process, and we thank everyone who participated in our community survey and provided feedback. Please see the links on the left for more information about Orinda schools’ needs.
