AUSD is currently reviewing new materials for K-5 English Language Arts (ELA) and English Language Development (ELD) instruction. AUSD will pilot three different programs in elementary classrooms across the district this spring. The pilot committee - which includes general and special education teachers, principals, ELD coaches, and literacy specialists - will consider feedback from all stakeholders and recommend a program for adoption in April. Parents and guardians who wish to review the materials can see them in the District Office, Monday-Friday, 8 am to 5 pm.


In August 2017, Alameda will host the World Baseball Tournament, featuring 14 and 15 year old baseball teams from around the world. The international tournament will feature teams from Australia, Mexico, Germany, Japan, Italy, Korea, and Singapore playing against teams from San Diego, Hawaii, Fresno, and Alameda. It is common practice for the host country to home-stay the international players. 

The Alameda World Baseball Team is looking for families to help host international players who will be in Alameda for the tournament. We are also looking for volunteers to work at the tournament, and corporate  and individual sponsors to help offset the cost of hosting this prestigious event. All donations will be tax-deductible.


If you are interested in learning more about the tournament or hosting a player, please contact Ken Cala, the President of the Board, at (510) 917-8280 or kenc@lowerythomas.com, Randy Marmor, Vice-President, at (510) 418-7451 or randy4sports@hotmail.com, or Bill Dal Porto, International Relations, at (510) 521-5564 or dalportobill@gmail.com.
