Measure A parcel tax

Alameda schools officials have offered a fresh accounting of the district’s Measure A spending, releasing a list of purchase orders and another detailing staff-related spending of parcel tax dollars in response to a public records request from The Alamedan.

The district released an eight-page list of payments to vendors offering a variety of supplies and services, along with a 19-page list detailing salary and benefit payments to teachers and other staff covered under the measure. The release concludes with a two-page “roll-up” document summarizing the spending detailed in the two lists.

Teachers and parents crowded into council chambers Tuesday night to urge a swift resolution to negotiations toward a contract for Alameda’s teachers and an end to the rancorous public airing of bargaining details.
