A five-member Board of Education oversees the Alameda Unified School District. Members are elected at-large and serve four-year terms.
The Board acts in the best interests of all students, reviews and approves the budget, authorizes expenditures, employs the Superintendent, and adopts a vision, mission, guiding principles, and policies within the limits of the State Education Code. Board members are accessible to the community and integrate public input into their deliberations and decision-making.

At the Board's December 12 meeting, they unanimously selected Margie Sherratt to serve the remainder of Megan Sweet's term from a pool of 10 applicants. Mrs. Sherratt will be sworn in at the Board's January 9 meeting.
