Alameda City Unified School District Reviews

Alameda Unified District has helped its students in many ways. As a student in the AUSD school system for 11 years, I have always had great teachers and held to high expectations and exceeded them due to the great staff. Although the education system is terrific, the school district could do more to address discrimination and hate speech among their high schools by being direct. With a diverse community of students, AUSD should be much more straightforward in addressing hate speech found at their schools and not shy away from it or simply send letters and voicemails home. They should also keep families updated on what the consequences of those who caused them will be.

The punishment for each tardy is one lunch detention. If a student gets a certain number of tardy slips, they are automatically excluded from a majority of the activities the school offers. It is an unfair rule, especially since there is a bridge that many people have to cross to get to their school and it rises unpredictably, lasting up to 10 minutes. The student should not be punished for lateness if it is the fault of the parent, and it often is. Not too many electives are taught at the schools, which narrows the career pathway decision for students.
Alameda City Unified School District is overall an educational district where all it benefits every individual to improve and become a better person. Certain schools encounter budget cuts and are placed to learn how to cope with the difficulties of this problematic dilemma causes With the budget cuts some schools are forced to encounter places a halt on the educational lives students in the bay area have to deal with and try to overcome in order to receive an education and not be poor in our society. Being part of alameda's educational district has taught me to work much more harder to progress in life and if i want to accomplish something its my responsibility to get to my destination without having to rely on other people. Even though, certain schools don't receive the opportunity to have any type of access towards technoogy or any beneficial educational programs, I learned that working as a team creates a major impact on the lives of the misfortunate.
