    Board briefs

    At its December 13 meeting, the Board of Education heard presentations on Paden Elementary School, the dress code pilot, English Language Learners, and the most recent California School Dashboard Report. Board Member Gary Lym and Mia Bonta were sworn in for their terms on the Board. The Board voted unanimously to approve both the First Interim Budget and a resolution in support of the East Bay Coalition for Public Education. In a 3-2 vote, the Board also voted to change the way in which a member becomes president from the rotation process to an election process and voted for Mia Bonta to be president, Gray Harris to be vice president, and Gary Lym to be clerk.

    About AUSD

    Serving Alameda children since 1855, the Alameda Unified School District’s mission is to effectively use our limited resources to ensure that every child succeeds. We believe that our diverse community of students, given a rigorous academic program in an inclusive, safe and secure environment, will be prepared to be responsible citizens.

    The district, which serves about 9500 students, has a wide range of school offerings, including a preschool, nine elementary schools, four middle schools, two comprehensive high schools, a continuation high school, an Early College High School, and an adult school. Approximately 18% of students are English language learners, reflecting the richness of cultures represented in our island city.

    We are very proud of the high quality education our staff provides. U.S. News and World Report  has recognized Alameda and Encinal High Schools as two of the top 1500 high schools in the nation. Our schools have also received gold, blue, and green ribbon awards from both the California and U.S. Departments of Education, and our graduates go on to a wide range of colleges and universities, as well as apprenticeships and jobs.
