Roundtable Mission

ALCANCE | A learning community of families and students.

Our mission is to promote a positive and successful educational experience for Latino students in Alameda by developing a strong network of community, parents, and students that connect, support, and create successful pathways to achieve academic and personal success.

 

Our goals are to

  • Serve as a liaison between the AUSD and the Latino community to ensure the success of Latino students.
  • Collaborate with community-based (e.g., business, civic, faith) organizations committed to cultivating effective pathways for educational success.
  • Develop parent/community groups to empower and equip parent leaders to support and advocate for the Latino community.
  • Provide the Latino community with the tools and information needed to create effective pathways for academic and personal success.
  • Connect Latino families with appropriate community-based supportive resources.
  • Celebrate academic achievements of Latino students.

 

ALCANCE meets on the third Wednesday of every month at the AUSD District Office.

 

Past meetings have covered:

  • LCAP Funding
  • ELD and the Reclassification Process
  • Parenting workshop on the importance of quality time and focus
  • Raising immigrant children in America

 

Next Level: Cultivating Parent Advocacy


ALCANCE was selected to participate in a statewide pilot program (in partnership with the California State PTA and the CDE Foundation) to learn how to navigate the new California School Dashboard.

 

The meeting took place on January 17, 2018. Click for more information in English or Spanish. Families walked away with an understanding of school performance by learning to read reported state data on a district and school level. The group will look for ways to engage more families at their own schools and together work brainstorm on what they can do to improve achievement for Latino students.

ALCANCE Conoce Tus Derechos | Know Your Rights

On April 18, 2017, the Alameda City Council voted to support immigrant and refugee support services and programs. Working in partnership with the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD), the Social Service Human Relations Board (SSHRB) is hosting a “Know Your Rights” Workshop at Ruby Bridges Elementary School on Wednesday, May 31, from 6:30-8:00 pm. The presentation focused on what to do in your home, school, workplace, or out on the street if faced with deportation and ICE raids. The workshop was facilitated by the International Institute of the Bay Area and presented in both English and Spanish with support of ALCANCE members. Alameda Police Chief Paul Rolleri will also be on hand to explain what Alameda’s Sanctuary City status means from a law enforcement perspective. Admission is Free.

School Smarts/ALCANCE Families

School Smarts/ALCANCE Families

Our Spanish speaking families have the opportunity to participate in School Smarts educational programming that teaches them how to navigate the American public school system. For a period of seven weeks they learn how children learn, what they will learn, how schools are structured and how they can get involved.

ALCANCE supports the next level of involvement and advocacy for their children.
