Alum Rock Union Elementary School District


The Alum Rock Union Elementary School District believes our schools and our broader community are best served by teachers, staff, parents and local residents working together to promote the health, well-being and learning of all students. In support of this philosophy, we welcome parents and members of our communities to take an active role in District events by dedicating time to attend and assist by volunteering.

Community partnerships help maximize resources and, ultimately, advance our mission to instill in our students a life long love of learning that will drive their future academic and professional success.
