The Alameda Unified School District is budgeting $28,830.50 to relocate its offices in a controversial move from it’s Central Avenue location to a new facility in Marina Village.

Tonight, the school board will consider recommendation to use Chipman Relocations to move its offices to 2060 Challenger Drive.

The district stirred controversy earlier this year when it elected to relocate from it’s historic Alameda High School location to the new office, and start seismic retrofit work on the existing building. Many said the multi-million dollar lease of the new facility, after passing a parcel tax in March of last year, said to be necessary for students and classrooms, was a mis-use of funds.

In response, the Alameda Education Association, the local teacher’s union, backed a slate of three school board candidates in last month’s election. Two were elected and will be sworn in tonight as well.
