Beginning January 26, go to the AUSD website to complete the online enrollment district form and schedule an appointment to enroll into the district; appointment start March 5, but you can schedule one starting January 26. Priority will be given first to current Alameda Unified Students and then to those Alameda residents that attend a non AUSD school who apply during the Open Enrollment period; however your spot won’t be guaranteed until you officially enroll back into the district. Contact AUSD Student Services for more information- see contact information below. 

 

IF YOU ARE NOT AN ALAMEDA RESIDENT, REGARDLESS OF WHERE YOUR STUDENT CURRENTLY ATTENDS SCHOOL, YOU MUST ALSO COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING:

  • Go to your home school district to apply for an inter-district transfer.
  • Then bring that inter-district transfer, a current transcript, discipline record and attendance record to AUSD Student Services office beginning on May 1st.  If your inter-district transfer is approved by the district office, you will then be advised on how to complete your enrollment for the upcoming school year. Inter-districts are approved on a space available only basis.  Notification of acceptance may not be received until after school starts.

Profile of a Successful ASTI Student:
While many different students have attended and been successful at ASTI, there are specific characteristics that all successful ASTI students usually share.  Similarly, students who have come to ASTI who did not possess these characteristics have often struggled and, in some cases, have left the program early.  While these characteristics are not selection criteria, we are providing these to help students and their families decide if ASTI is the right place for them.   These characteristics include:

1. Middle School GPA 3.0 or above

2. Excellent attendance – no pattern of absences or tardies

3. Passing grades – Minimal to no D’s and F’s on transcript

4. CAASPP English & Math Scores Approaching, Met or Exceeded Standard
