Amelia Earhart Elementary School
Students at a pair of Alameda schools are celebrating wins in regional and state competitions.
The school district is accepting proposals for new magnet schools and innovative school programs that could be open for business by the fall of 2015.
Assistant Superintendent Barbara Adams said some schools have expressed interest in starting a new program, but nothing specific is in the works yet. Proposals for new programs will be due in June, while those from schools seeking to copy existing programs are due a few months earlier, in March.
Brand-new programs that win school board approval would open in the fall of 2016, while programs that replicate existing innovative or magnet programs would open a year earlier, in 2015.
