AUSD Now Accepting Nominations for 
Classified School Employees of the Year

Do you know a custodian, tradesperson, food services employee, payroll technician, paraprofessional, instructional assistant, school secretary, or office manager in AUSD who you think is doing excellent work for children and staff? Alameda community members can now nominate AUSD employees for the state's Classified School Employee of the Year program. Nominations go first to the school district. The district sends all nominations to the Alameda County Office of Education, which, in turn, sends them to the California Department of Education (CDE).
