A Note about Board of Education Member Niel Tam
It is with deep sadness that we let our community know of Niel Tam's illness. Niel, who has been a Board of Education member since 2008, was very recently diagnosed with leukemia. He is getting the care he needs, is in good spirits, and has a positive attitude as always.
Niel is a valued and beloved member of our Alameda Unified School District family.
We wish him and his family great strength and deep support in this difficult time.
Neil has been a selfless champion for all people during a career spanning decades in the Alameda Unified School District. He was an excellent teacher, a committed vice principal, an outstanding principal, and an active community organizer. As a board member, Neil has modeled leadership, wisdom, and compassion for all of us, and he has served as a steadfast mentor for many of us.
Indeed, he continues to be a model as he battles his newly diagnosed illness.
We know and care for Niel,
and we are thinking good thoughts for him and his family.

Our five year strategic plan (“AUSD Master Plan”) adopted in 2010 identifies eight core goals and strategies that have shaped the District’s work in recent years. Along with our Board’s guiding principles, that strategic work has produced many accomplishments and great progress that we intend to continue to build on in the future.
