Tonight, the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) Board of Trustees will consider alternatives for accommodating charter school facility requests for the 2014 to 2015 school year, including relocating Alameda Community Learning Center (ACLC) for the second time in as many years.

Last fall, against the objections of parents, the district relocated ACLC charter school from its long-time home at the Encinal High School campus to the Will C. Wood Middle School campus.

Now, the district is saying that plans at Wood Middle School to get out of program improvement status call for the utilization of nine additional classrooms and increased enrollment, probably necessitating another relocation of ACLC.

Nea, ACLC’s sister-school, has asked AUSD to relocate a projected 371 students, and the entire Nea K-12 program, to the Longfellow campus, which currently hosts only the Nea grades 6-12 “upper village.” However, AUSD says there aren’t enough classrooms at Longfellow to accommodate all of Nea.

One of the options that will be presented to the AUSD board is the combination of Nea and ACLC facilities at the Woodstock campus, providing Nea with 17 classrooms and ACLC with 12, for a total of 29 classrooms.

However, this would push Island High School out of Woodstock, over to the Longfellow campus. The adult education and independent study programs currently at Woodstock would have to move to the Chipman campus, vacated by Nea, or to vacant classrooms at other schools.

The board meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. in city council chambers at Alameda City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Avenue.
