Welcome to SLED!

SLED is an independent not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to raising resources and improving the lives and education of children in the San Leandro Unified School District. The foundation's areas of focus include enrichment, health and safety, technology, volunteerism and supporting the San Leandro High School Arts Education Center. 


San Leandro Schools Need Volunteers Ages 10 to 99 Years Old! 
NEWS FLASH! One School Library COMPLETE! Our next stop is Garfield Elementary School! 

SignUpGenius-logoThe San Leandro school district is investing in libraries like never before; extending hours, increasing holdings, and using technology to help kids learn to read. But to make all of this happen they need armies of volunteers to go into the libraries and label each and every book with a specially coded label. These labels help teachers, students and parents identify books at the appropriate reading level for each student and then links to computer based quizzes that evaluate comprehension and literacy levels. 


SLED is stepping up to recruit and coordinate volunteers for this project and we need YOUR help! If you are interested in helping, or know of a group of people interested, please click on the SIGNUP Genius Logo. You can also email if you have any questions. 

The relabel project takes place from Monday through Thursday from 9 to 3. We are looking for people willing to commit at least 2 hours at a time. Our plan is to complete all eight elementary school libraries over the summer months. Thank you!
