AUSD School Consolidation Plan on the Agenda Tomorrow Night

Tomorrow night, the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) will consider a resolution confirming a plan for school consolidation for the 2011/2012 and 2012/13 school years. The plan would be implemented if AUSD does not successfully pass a parcel tax measure at the ballot in March of next year, and would close four schools, two of which are non-performing elementary or middle schools.

Will C Wood middle school, which is in year one of Program Improvement, under the No Child Left Behind act, for not achieving annual academic performance goals, and Washington Elementary, which was identified by the State of California as a “low achieving school” under the Romero Bill/Open Enrollment Act, are two schools that would close; Wood would close in the 2011/12 school year, and Washington would close along with Franklin and Otis elementary schools in the 2012/13 school year. Franklin elementary school is the smallest capacity school in the District. The school district said that schools would close if voters didn’t pass Measure E earlier this year, but that school parcel tax measured failed in June, and no schools were closed for the 2010/11 school year. On November 30th, the AUSD Board of Trustees approved a resolution to put another parcel tax measure on the ballot in the new year.

The plan would see attendance zone boundaries change for most elementary schools, and the district’s two high schools, and Encinal High School would expand in 2011/12 to support grades 7 through 12. Class sizes at Elementary schools would be set at 32, subject to the district’s negotiations with labor unions.
