Teachers' strike is costing Oakland school district about $1 million a day


February 28, 2019

As the Oakland Unified teachers’ strike enters its fifth day, the costs of the strike are eroding some of the funds that the financially struggling district could have used to meet teacher demands for higher salaries, smaller class sizes and more extensive support services.

Oakland Unified is losing about $1 million for each day teachers are out of work and students are out of classes, according to both the district and estimates provided to EdSource by School Services of California, a Sacramento-based consulting firm that provides financial and other advice to many school districts.
