Preserve the Henry Haight Campus
Say “No” to the proposed move of Academy of Alameda (AOA) Elementary School to
Henry Haight Elementary School Campus
We, the undersigned, demand that the Alameda Unified School District’s (AUSD) stop plans and proposals to establish the newly expanded Academy of Alameda Elementary School (AOA) on the Henry Haight Elementary School campus.
We believe this move would negatively impact our students and our community and it is not equitable to put the burden of this policy on the backs of Title 1 students.
Henry Haight Elementary is at capacity with our current enrollment and this plan would displace and dismantle important programs for our school community including ELD and Special Ed classes. Henry Haight received a Title 1 Achievement Award as a result of the important program and services we provide to Haight students. We are proud to serve a diverse student body and to provide excellent special education services as well as serving the educational needs of new English speakers. To co-locate another school on our campus would place an undue hardship on our students, teachers and community.
We hereby request that the AUSD and AOA find other alternatives to co-location on Henry Haight Elementary School. Please respect and support our ability to continue to serve our diverse and growing community. Respectfully,
