Description
The Live Oak School Records include annual reports issued by administrators and teachers, as well as registers that list students by grade level, how often they attended and were ill, and their grades. The registers in the collection also elaborate policies and guidelines issued by the State of California for the conduct of teachers, students, and district administrators.
Background
Live Oak School district officially came into existence on February 9, 1864. At that time, the school was located west of Cherokee Lane, in Lodi. Reports from that period suggest that the schoolhouse had only one room, in which a single teacher watched over approximately fifty students. The district expanded in size and the number of students under its jurisdiction over the next eighty years. In 1949, it opened the doors of a newly constructed schoolhouse on Wyandotte Road (later, Bear Creek Road) that boasted 14,600 square feet. Over the next twenty years, the number of students who attended Live Oak School continued to grow, and in 1967 it was absorbed into the Lodi Unified School District. Live Oak School closed its doors for the last time in the summer of 2011.
