School ‘shopping

Submitted by on 1, January 30, 2009 – 7:45 amNo Comment

Alameda Unified is reaching out to you, dear reader, on two important topics in the coming weeks: They’ll be hosting workshops on the budget and elementary school curriculum dealing with sexual orientation and gender identity. And you’re invited.

Next Wednesday and Thursday, February 4-5, they’ll host forums to lay out a proposed elementary school curriculum dealing with family diversity, inclusion, and anti-bullying/anti-slurs. They’ll also address the law and policies, statistics, K-12 action plan and the district’s responsibility to ensure the safety of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students, family members and staff.

Wednesday’s forum is in the multipurpose room at Otis School, 3010 Fillmore Street, and Thursday’s is at Washington School, 825 Taylor Street. Both run from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The district is also hosting a second set of meetings to discuss the impact of the governor’s proposed budget on our schools. The first is to be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. February 11 at Henry Haight elementary school, 2025 Santa Clara Avenue. The second will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. April 2 at Wood Middle School, 420 Grand Avenue.
