*A Note About Summer 2020 Board of Education Meetings

Typically, AUSD's Board of Education does not meet in July. Due to the current

situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board will be meeting

on Friday, July 17th to finalize plans for the opening of the 2020-2021 school year.


The Board and district staff have been delighted by the amount of people who have

been logging into our Board of Education meetings on Zoom. On behalf of the

Board of Education, thank you for tuning in and offering your feedback.



Important information regarding AUSD Board Meetings during the Shelter in Place Order:


In response to the Shelter in Place Order given to Alameda County and to the State of California, the Alameda Unified School District will be conducting its Board of Trustees meeting in a different modality.


The District will be leveraging a Webinar format (using Zoom) in order for the Trustees to participate remotely, and to allow for orderly public comment. There will not be a physical location for this meeting.


Participants who would like to make comments can join the meeting from their computer, tablet or smartphone. We ask the participants to type their full name when joining the meeting, as prompted. The Superintendent, or Superintendent's designee, will announce the opportunity for public comment on agenda items only. We ask that all participants who wish to make public comments for that agenda item use the “raise your hand” functionality. To use the "raise your hand" function, please hit <ALT Y > on a PC to "raise your hand" and hit <Option + Y> on a Mac.

Once their hand is "raised" attendees will be called upon, their microphone unmuted, and then allowed to make their statement for up to three minutes. At the end of the three minutes, the attendee’s microphone will be muted and the next participant will be called upon.


Information to join the Board Meeting from a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device are as follows:

  • Those participants who do not have a Zoom account may visit the Zoom home page and under “Join a Meeting” at the top of the page, type in the following meeting ID: 174 934 626
  • If a member of the public is unable to join the meeting via Zoom, they may send their public comment to: The public comment will be read out loud by the Senior Executive Assistant to the Superintendent.
