To the Editor:
I am writing to make you aware of an important local issue. Bay Farm Middle School is facing closure. Lack of communication has prevented the community from engaging in conversations regarding the closure—basically, the community was given notice only weeks before the scheduled AUSD Board vote.
It is a waste of district resources and taxpayer dollars to close an existing, successful program. Why is the district not working to increase enrollment and remove barriers which make it harder for families to enroll at Bay Farm? It is is the only open-enrollment middle school in Alameda. This means that its closure will impact the entire city.
