AUSD Addresses Budget Concerns
Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) Board of Education meeting last Tuesday addressed AUSD’s budget as compared to other districts in Alameda County. This discussion included the impact that low salaries have on Alameda’s public schools and the possibility of layoffs. The district has launched a community conversation about its budget priorities. Talking points include small class sizes, special programs and rising pension and special education costs. The district is planning to hold community meetings to review budget realities.
In the meantime AUSD is asking the public to participate in a survey. The results will help the school district better understand public perspective on its spending priorities. Take the survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/BK9L7Z2.
