Welcome to Oxford

This PTA-hosted website has info for incoming families, the staff & rooms rosterclass lists, and a calendar we update regularly—also see the events that are coming up next on the right—plus the latest news, daily routine, school policies and governance info for our current Oxford community of about 300 K–5th grade students, staff, families and friends.


This is the place to learn more about the Toolbox curriculum and our wonderful community meetings and get all the details on how to donate, shop & give, and volunteer to support and fully fund Oxford!


What’s Measure E1? What’s BSEP?

20% of all current funding for the Berkeley public schools comes from BSEP, a tax authorized by voter ballot measure. Oxford’s library, music and technology programs, among other things, are provided by BSEP funds.


2/3 of Berkeley voters must vote to re-authorize BSEP in the November 8 general election (Measure E1) in order for funding to stay in place for the next eight years. Read more about BSEP and who funds what at Oxford.

Fundraising Off to a Running Start

The Oxford Fundraising Committee kicked off the school year with the Campaign for Oxford, and the community has raised a chunk already (see the web counter above)! As we look forward to a fun year, we hope you can give your time and talents to support Oxford but we also hope for your financial support too—please donate online today. There are also Shop & Give events on the horizon.


No matter how small the donation, every dollar counts. Not all families can give the same amount, so if you can give a little extra, please do!


$9/student = one month of PE
$16/student = a year of art and PE supplies
