On Wednesday night, the Oakland Board of Educators held a virtual meeting to discuss police on campus. In this meeting the Oakland Unified School District declared they want police-free campuses.

They are asking that the Oakland Unified School District Police, which is different from OPD, be removed from schools. They have come up with a legislation named The George Floyd Resolution. 

Educators want children to have a safe environment and not feel surrounded by the police. The Board of Educators only presented the legislation during this meeting and will be voting on it this June 24th.
