Stein Elementary Current Concerns Lack of adequate instructional and intervention space. Insufficient teacher work area(s). Playground, parking, and cafeteria overcrowding. Temporary buildings are permanent.
Proposed Plan Creating a new International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program elementary school at the current O’Connell Middle School location. Combining the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP), which serves students in grades 7 through 10, into a single site on the Alameda International High School campus. Moving all 11th and 12th graders, including the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (DP), to a separate wing on the Alameda International High School campus.

Why a 7-12 High School for Alameda? International Baccalaureate Program – Middle Years Program for All Students: 7 th through 10 th Grade. Research supports – Fewer transitions for students = improved achievement and reduced drop-out rates. – Longer years in a facility positive correlation for students and staff. – Access to more resources for students and staff.

Why a New Elementary School? Timely response for: – Improved classroom and common area conditions specifically for Stein elementary school. – The school district to accommodate additional student enrollment in the Alameda area. Maintain community partnerships – Boys and Girls club, clinics, adult education, pre- school programs.
