Alameda, Calif. — Wednesday, September 28, 2016 — The Board of Education for the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) last night approved the hire of Robert Slauson, a veteran teacher and principal devoted to supporting students and staff so that all can reach their highest potential.
Mr. Slauson, who has worked as a principal in Oregon, Colorado, and Nebraska, has won a number of awards, including “Outstanding High School Principal” in Nebraska. He was also selected for the Fulbright Principal Exchange Program in Germany. During that exchange program, he traveled with about twenty school administrators from across America to learn about the German school system and meet German administrators.
After completing his undergraduate work in education at Pacific University in Oregon, Mr. Slauson received a Master’s degree in Education, as well as his administrative credential, at Lewis & Clark College in Portland.
Mr. Slauson said he is looking forward to working in “an outstanding district with positive, pro-active leadership and great community support. I am very impressed with the Edison learning community and the commitment of the staff. The parental support is obvious and the students are successful.”
Added Superintendent Sean McPhetridge, “I am so pleased to bring another experienced and passionate principal to our administrative team. I think the Edison community will be happy with Rob Slauson’s strong leadership, professional background, and deep commitment to student success.”
