AUSD

The Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) is now accepting applications for both the Measure B1 and Measure I Oversight committees.

Measure B1, which was approved by Alameda voters in 2016, is an extension of the Measure A parcel tax approved in 2011. Like its predecessor, Measure B1 raises $12 million per year for core programs, including Advanced Placement classes, neighborhood schools, small class sizes in grades K-3, athletics, enrichment and technology. Measure B1 began July 1, 2018, and will sunset on June 30, 2020.

Dear Alameda families:
I sincerely hope that the opening of school and first week of classes went well for all our students and their parents or guardians. Facilitating positive educational experiences for students is a multifaceted and often underappreciated task. I have been struck already by the deep commitment I have seen from our educators during both summer meetings and visits to classes all this first week.

The Alameda Unified School District offers free or reduced-price nutritious meals to students from low-income families every school day under the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program or the Afterschool Snack Program. Through June 30, 2020, families with household incomes less than or equal to the federal guidelines are eligible. 

The Board of Education for the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) voted Tuesday, June 25, 4-0 (with one trustee absent) to appoint Pasquale Scuderi as superintendent. Scuderi will step in as superintendent on Monday, July 8.

This summer the Alameda Unified School District will serve free breakfasts and lunches in Alameda for all children and teens 18 years and younger Monday through Friday, except for Thursday, July 4.

don’t shame upon what we decided on
let the truthfulness of my outward title live on
you can’t erase us like words on paper
can’t tell us that you’ll validate us later

 

Alameda students are invited to enter the “Everyone Belongs Here” poster contest by Tuesday, April 30. The theme this year is “Every Pronoun Belongs Here.” Through original art and writing, entrants must use the pronoun she, he, they, ze, hir or co in place of formal names, and that regardless of that pronoun the individual is a part of the community, a citizen and accepts all citizens.

 

The Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) Board of Education (BOE) will place a district representative on the Community Learning Center Schools (CLCS) board after approving an agreement at its Feb. 12 meeting. 

All five BOE members voted to approve a settlement agreement with CLCS in the closed session portion of the school board meeting. CLCS operates Alameda Community Learning Center and Nea Community Learning Center. 

 

Many Alameda parents voiced their disapproval of Alameda Unified School District’s (AUSD) decision to move a class for students with special needs from Lincoln School (LMS) to Wood Middle School (WMS) at the district’s Feb. 26 school board meeting.

Parents of AUSD students and community members signed an open letter to AUSD demanding the district take vigorous efforts to make the district more inclusive for children with special needs.

 

The City of Alameda and the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) are launching a “Summer Jobs Campaign” to encourage more employers to create summer jobs and internships for teens.  The Fifth Annual Alameda Youth Career & Job Fair will take place on Thursday, March 21, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., at Encinal High School’s gymnasium, 210 Central Avenue.
