San Francisco Chronicle

Kaiser Permanente will pour $7.5 million into Oakland schools over the next three years, a donation aimed at expanding health care and other school-based programs, district and Kaiser officials announced Monday.

The amount offered was “extraordinary,” Superintendent Tony Smith said.

The grant will pay for new wellness centers in middle schools and a vision program, including exams and much-needed glasses for elementary school children, among other things, he said.
