Albany High principal stepping down
Ted Barone has retired as principal at Albany High School after eight years, ending a tenure that saw the highly rated school continue to accumulate honors for academic achievement.
Pete Palmer is a graduate of Piedmont High School. He holds a bachelor's degree in conservation and resource studies from UC Berkeley and has held a Class B General Contractor's License for more than 25 years. A number of candidates were interviewed for the position by a panel that included administrators, parents, a board member and custodial staff. Palmer stood out, according to Superintendent Randy Booker.
The budget was approved 4-0 with trustee Rick Raushenbush absent at the June 24 meeting. It shows total revenues of $36,932,712 and expenditures of $35,936,074. The Local Control Funding Formula, the new method of state disbursements to the schools, will bring in more than half the revenue at $19,587,621.
Custodians and maintenance and food service workers at the Alameda Unified School District will receive an ongoing 5 percent pay raise under a tentative contract their union has negotiated with district officials.
