Generation YES and New Leaders have announced today that they will combine their expertise to pilot a new school leadership model in the Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) in a program funded by the Cisco Foundation. Ten OUSD Elementary, Middle, and High schools have been selected to deliver a Student Technology Leaders program aimed toward helping school administrators more effectively integrate technology into their schools. Specially prepared student technology leaders will contribute basic technology infrastructure support and provide their teachers real-time professional development. 

Generation YES and New Leaders will host a series of August 2016 camps in OUSD schools for students, teachers, and principals to lay the groundwork for the program starting in the 2016-17 school year. Throughout the year, administrators will continue to bring students into technology leadership roles by having them participate on committees, lead technology workshops, and create peer mentoring opportunities. At the conclusion of the one-year pilot, a guidebook for administrators will be created to help other districts and schools who want to incorporate student voice and leadership into school reform efforts.
