About Our School

Edison Elementary School is a neighborhood school located just a few blocks away from Alameda’s bustling Park Street and Central Avenue shopping and dining district.  With a population of approximately 480 students in grades Kindergarten through fifth and a robust Parent Teacher Association, Edison Elementary School is a thriving and vibrant community.  The staff is made up of highly dedicated individuals who bring years of experience and knowledge to teaching each child at Edison.  Edison Otters are active and hard-working students who contribute to the school community in a number of ways.  Our students strive to uphold the Edison Citizen Agreements and are committed to our Go Green efforts.  Edison’s PTA further enhances the learning environment at Edison with many programs, funding, field trips, technology, classroom materials, and other essential resources.

Edison School Site Council

Hello Edison Families!


If you are interested in joining our Edison School Site Council.

The School Site Council develops, approves and monitors the implementation of the SPSA, the district required Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), reaffirming and/or revising school goals, improvement strategies, expenditures, and provides an opportunity for parents/guardians to have a voice in making decisions about how State and Federal funds, allocated to our school site, are spent. All school sites are required to have a School Site Council (SSC).


The SSC is made up of an equal number of (5) staff and (5) parents/guardians/community members. Staff members on the Council include the principal, teachers, and other school personnel. It is our goal to have parent/guardian members who represent the diversity of our school.


The SSC meets monthly and follows standard agency meeting rules and governing by-laws of the SSC. Only official members of the SSC can vote on items under the SSC control. All meetings are open to the public. SSC members commit to attend monthly meetings held on Tuesdays, from 4pm to 5pm.

If you would like to serve on Edison’s SSC, please fill out the interest/nomination form at the link below.  The form nomination form will close Wednesday at midnight.

School Smarts

School Smarts

School Smarts is an investment in your children, yourself, and your family.


By attending the seven week course, you can get solutions to your questions, including: 

— why is my student not approaching homework the way I want them too?

— how can we, as a family, be on the same page when it comes to parenting and education?

— am I setting my child up for success or failure for the next school year and all the years to come?

— why should I, as a parent or guardian, be thinking about middle school, high school, and college now?

— why does my participation at Edison make a difference?

— why does it matter how I contribute in my community?


School Smarts won’t solve everything, but it’s a terrific start.


Please, feel free to ask Sarai any questions through Konstella (preferred), at EdisonSchoolSmarts@gmail.com, or any time you catch Sarai on campus.

Annual Back-to-School Registration for 2017-2018

AUSD uses Back-to-School Registration every year to confirm that a student will be attending a district school in the upcoming school year. The registration also gives parent/guardians a chance to update emergency contacts, acknowledge annual authorizations, and review the district’s policies. We ask that parent/guardians complete the registration via our InfoSnap online system as soon as possible.

To get started, you will need your student’s unique 2017-18 SnapCode. We will send these out by email starting July 26. (If we don’t have a valid email, we will send the SnapCode to you via postal mail.) If you do not receive this information by August 7, please contact your student’s school site directly for assistance. The easiest way to access registration is to click the snapcode link in the email. If you receive a letter or need to log back into InfoSnap click here:
