Here it is folks, your regularly scheduled, perennial, local school district funding crisis!
Alameda schools are at a crossroads.
Over the last seven years, more than $7 million in cuts have been made to our schools. State funding has become less and less reliable with the situation worsening this year in the face of the state budget crisis.
Superintendent Kirsten Vital and the Board of Education are creating a Master Plan that will define the direction
Alameda schools will take over the next several years. They are inviting the Alameda community to participate in the
discussion of the future of our schools.
• Can AUSD live on state funding alone?
Wednesday, May 20th at Henry Haight Elementary School,
2025 Santa Clara Avenue, 6:30-8:00pm
After the May 20th meeting, the discussion will continue:
• What would a district of charter schools look like?
Tuesday, June 2nd, 6:30-8:00pm at Edison Elementary School
• How do we define and provide for a quality education in light of the funding challenges we face?
Tuesday, August 18th, 6:30-8:00pm at Will C. Wood Middle School
