Last day of school

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 6:06 am

Stay safe out there people, there will be packs of reveling students out there.

Good luck.


  1. Yes, please be extra careful today.

    Unfortunately, this school year is ending under an ominous dark cloud. Not resolving contract negotiations this year is a dangerous step at a critical fork in the road. It risks becoming a tragic act of self-destruction.

    • If the negotiations teams reached a tentative agreement last week , the ominous dark cloud means that the rank and file did not approve tentative agreement.

      • Correct.

  2. I don’t know enough to make a judgement let alone trust it and probably many teachers are in a similar boat if they suffer myopia due to the stress of doing their jobs. It’s a little Catch 22. Just sayin’, to many who may be first to judge teachers without restraint for perception they are shooting themselves in the feet, talk shit about them etc., etc., etc.

  3. “perception they are shooting themselves in the feet”

    If it walks like a duck . . .

    This opportunity for peace has passed.

    Soon we will find out what’s next.

    • Perhaps it’s a tactical move to get the unions to work on the parcel tax renewal campaign. Solana Henneberry, Barbara Kahn and Gray Harris seem to think all you need is union support to get the measure passed.

      • Cindy, you think it can pass without it ? Not sarcastic, real question .

  4. 4 When will the AUSD school board and administration move out of their very comfortable and expensive Marina Village offices?

    • Finding 20,000 square feet of space for District office is not an easy task. In December, 2012 staff presented an option to purchase the building that would have been the best fiscal decision for the District in the long term. However, it was clear the community would not support the purchase of the building for the school bond measure to pass. Eventually, Historic Alameda High School will be seismically upgraded and space for District staff will become available.
