AUSD Has New Head of Human Resources

At the regular meeting of the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) Board of Directors last week, the board announced the hiring of new Chief Human Resources Officer Timothy Erwin.

Starting full time Dec. 1, Erwin comes from the position of assistant superintendent of human resources for the Newark Unified School District where he has served since 2007.

Erwin holds a bachelor’s degree in religious studies from Holy Names University and a master’s in divinity from the Franciscan School

of Theology. Before beginning his career in school administration in 1999, he worked as a Catholic priest and reserve police officer. He has two children who graduated from Encinal High School and a third attending middle school in Alameda. Erwin and his family have lived for many years on the West End.

"After 15 years of leaving Alameda every day to go to work in another school district, I am very happy to be able to give back to the school community where my children have gone to school and where we live," said Erwin.
