Release of Information

Oakland Fund for Children and Youth (OFCY) funds an annual independent evaluation to see if its programs are making a difference and how they can be improved. As part of the evaluation, all OFCY funded programs are responsible for securing a consent-to-participate in evaluation activities from clients they enroll in an OFCY funded programs.

For your OFCY-funded program, you are required to have every enrolled client (and their parent, guardian, or other legally authorized representative if a minor) sign a Release of Information Form giving consent to being evaluated by the City and the designated evaluation consultant, including sharing information with and from Oakland Unified School District.

Programs in the Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation funding strategy will be exempt from requiring the parents of children in child development centers and Head Start programs from completing this form, as primary services are provided to teachers rather than the children directly.

Please contact your grant monitor directly with any questions regarding this contractual requirement.
