How to get Involved

Our Ways to Get Involved page lists many ways that community members and parent/guardians can engage in and contribute to our schools and our district.

 

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 I Facilities Bond (2014)

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.

 

This bond was based on the 2014 Facilities Master Plan, which identified nearly $600 million in critical facility needs, educational program needs, and future needs for AUSD school sites.

 

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 and raises approximately $12 million per year to be used for 11 different programs, including small K-3 class sizes, neighborhood elementary schools, high school athletics, and K-12  enrichment classes. 

 

Measure A (2020)

On March 3, 2020, Alameda voters approved Measure A by 67.5%. Specifically designed to attract and retain high-quality employees, Measure A raises $10 million per year to be used to bring AUSD salaries closer to the Alameda County average.

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 Alameda PTAC for information.

 

Alameda Education Foundation

The Alameda Education Foundation supports and manages educational opportunities, innovation, and equity for AUSD students.  The programs support the academic, athletic, creative, and social growth for Alameda’s 10,000+ K - 12 students and include Adopt A Classroom grants for teachers, after-school classes and summer camps, college admission prep programs, a district-wide robotics league, site-based middle school sports, and Art Across the Island student art exhibitions.
