Supporting Our Schools

The support of the entire Alameda community is extremely important to the success of our schools. From parent involvement to the support of individual community members and local businesses, broad community backing has allowed our schools to weather difficult economic times and make important facility improvements.

Measures Supporting AUSD

Measure C

In 2004, Alamedans overwhelmingly supported Measure C, a $63 million bond measure that provided needed funding to build a new school, Ruby Bridges Elementary, and make needed improvements to existing schools such as seismic and accessibility upgrades, and a variety of improvements that have enhanced the learning environment for all students and teachers.

For a list of specific projects, download the Measure C Update – 2009

Latest Measure C Update- November 29, 2011

 

Measures A & H Parcel Taxes

In 2005 and 2008, in the face of severe state cuts to education funding, Alamedans again generously voted to support Alameda schools by passing Measures A and H, a total of $7 million in parcel taxes that fund critical school programs such as AP courses and athletics, and smaller class sizes. Both parcel taxes were replaced in June 2011 by the district's newest parcel tax, Measure A (2011). See below for more information on Measure A 2011.


Measure A

On March 8, 2011 Alameda voters approved a new Measure A by 68.01%. This new parcel tax will generate approximately $12 million per year for seven years (i.e., through June 2018). It replaced the current Measure A and H taxes effective June 2011. For more information on Measure A, visit this page.

 

Facilities Master Plan

The Board of Education approved a Facilities Master Plan for AUSD in May, 2014. The plan lists nearly $600 million in critical facility needs, educational program needs, and future needs for AUSD school sites. You can find the entire Facilities Master Plan here.

 

Measure I

Measure I -- a $179.5 million facilities bond -- was approved by 62.75% of Alameda voters on November 4, 2014. The funds will be used to modernize and in some cases expand existing school facilities in AUSD, as well as restore Historic Alameda High School. Updates on Measure I projects are located here.

 

Measure B1 (2016)

On November 8, 2016, Alameda voters approved Measure B1 by 74.25%. The measure extends the 2011 Measure A parcel tax until June, 2025.

 

District Master Plan

The Board of Education and Superintendent Vital have completed a Master Plan early in 2010 that provides a clear roadmap for decision-making over the next several years. As these decisions will impact our entire community, we encourage everyone to get involved. Please check our website for updates on the plan and ways to get involved in the process.

For more information, visit the Master Plan section.

Supporting Organizations

PTA Council

Alameda's PTA Council is composed of representatives from each school PTA. The council provides leadership, funding, communication, and programs for parents and students throughout AUSD. Visit www.alamedaptac.org for information.

 

Alameda Education Foundation

The Alameda Education Foundation believes that every child in the Alameda Unified School District deserves a well-rounded, high-quality education. A vital force in AUSD for more than 25 years, AEF raises funds to provide programs such as visual and performing arts, sports, AP classes, mini grants for teachers, SAT and ACT prep, sophomore college counseling, and afterschool and summer enrichment camps. The foundation also organizes an island-wide backback/school supply drive for low-income Alameda K-12 students.
