About Us

Dedicated Educators

The history of America has been largely created by the deeds of its working people and their organizations--there is scarcely an issue that is not influenced by labor’s organized efforts or lack of them.— William Cahn, Labor historian 

Our History


The idea for this timeline and ARUSD history came from the several requests to AREA President, Marc Shaw, from teachers who wished to know more about our school district, as well as the history of education in California.   This timeline is condensed but lists significant events that have shaped the history of Alum Rock School District, the superintendents, and Alum Rock Educators Association.
