Measure I Background

On November 4, 2014, Alameda voters approved Measure I, a $179.5 million facilities bond for the Alameda Unified School District. This bond was based on the 2014 Facilities Master Plan, which identified $590 million worth of renovations, modernizations, and repairs needed in AUSD's school sites.

According to the schedule approved by the Board of Education in March, 2015, the first $90 million in funds will be used to renovate and modernize the school district's elementary, middle, and charter schools, while design work begins on renovations to Encinal High School and Alameda High School. Subsequent projects will be funded as more of the bond funds are received through 2019.

Bond project work began in the summer of 2015.

Energy Plans

AUSD's energy conservation and efficiency plan, developed in partnership with Cenergistics, kicked off. The plan focuses on reducing energy demand across the district by educating employees about how to use less energy and adopting more energy efficient equipment.



The Board of Education approved the district's Facility Design Standards for Technology and Communication. See more on the bottom right sidebar of the Measure I page. The Technology/Computer Committee also developed a plan to create a prototype 21st-century education classroom at Wood Middle School.


Safety and Security

AUSD and Quattrocchi Kwok Architects kicked off the district-wide fencing project with community meetings across the school district. (See the box in the upper right-hand corner of this page for more details.)

Safety and Security

The Safety and Security Standards Committee drafted a report on the kinds of fences, locks, alarms, and other security measures that should be installed at the sites. These standards wee presented to the Board of Education on October 27, 2015.



The Technology/Computer Committee forms and begins to meet.

AUSD Fencing Project

During the 2013-2014 Facility Master Plan process, representatives from AUSD and Quattrocchi Kwok Architects (QKA) held multiple community meetings at every school site, as well as three community-wide meetings to review the goals identified for each school site. At each of those meetings, school staff members and families expressed a strong desire for better security at the school sites.


The Facility Master Plan was used to shape the Measure I bond, which voters passed in November, 2014. Beginning in 2015, the Safety and Security Committee began meeting to discuss ways of upgrading the school sites, including updating not only fencing but door locks, key systems, alarm and communication systems, drop-off areas and pick-up zones, and accessibility provisions. You can read the final report from the committee, which the Board of Education approved in October 2015, here.


The fences are primarily meant to secure the perimeter of the school site during school hours, protect the inner core of school sites during non-school hours, and help funnel visitors to the campus into one primary, highly visible entrance.


In April, 2016, the district launched a district-wide fencing project with a series of community meetings designed to present the background and parameters of the project and gather community input. Those meetings were held: 


April 6 (for Bay Farm, Earhart, Edison, and Lincoln Middle School) Lincoln Middle School MPR



April 14 (for Otis, Maya Lin, Wood, and Lum) Wood Middle School MPR


April 19 (for Paden, Haight, Franklin and Alameda High) Alameda High School Cafeteria


May 25 (for WCDC/Island High, Academy of Alameda, Longfellow, and Encinal Junior & Senior High) Island High School MPR



Moving forward, the architects will meet with the school communities at each site to gather input on the exact design and configuration of the fences. The fence at Edison Elementary School is being designed in the summer of 2016 and will serve as a pilot project for the rest of the district.
