2014 - Interesting Times Ahead

January 11, 2014

Elimination of bubble testing, parent participation in budgeting and school site makeover planning are three big things happening in Alameda in 2014.

First, with the suspension of CST standardized testing, students will be piloting tests for the Common Core Standards.

Second, with a new state funding formula (LCFF) school districts are required to create an advisory committee as part of the Local Control Accountability Plan.

Third, Alameda Unified is in the process of developing site by site master plans which will be integrated into a District wide Facilities Master Plan.

Facilities Master Plan Process

May 10, 2014

At the October 8 meeting, the Board selected Quattrocchi Kwok Architects to develop a Facilities Master Plan. At the October 22 meeting the Board approved the scope of work and these additions. At January 28 2014 BOE meeting a status update on the progress was given.

The draft Facilities Master Plan is done. It identifies over $575 million in projects to fix Alameda schools. However, the maximum amount of $180 million is can be place on the November ballot. Here are survey results and comments about the strategies to prioritize the list of schools/projects.

Measure H Lawsuit

June 12, 2013

The Appeals Court has ruled that a portion of the Measure H is invalid. The Appeals court has directed the lower court to determine how plaintiffs can have their portion above $120 per parcel returned to them. The amount of monies in question are approximately $2.4 million per year for the three years it was collected. The subsequent parcel tax (Measure A) was not appealed and therefore will stand.

After granting a rehearing, the Appeals Court reaffirmed its initial ruling that the portion of Measure H impacting commercial property is invalid.

In June, the Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal. As a result, the case will return to Superior Court for determination on how refunds will be issued. AUSD issued this press release.
