FATIMA ALLEYNE, Ph.D.
Research Scientist/Educator


I am running for the Contra Costa County Board of Education because I believe ALL students deserve access to a quality public education; and as a parent and community advocate at the district level, I believe I can be the voice of West County residents.
    I am committed to enhancing the level of accountability in our county.  This can be accomplished by not only assisting with implementation and oversight of the new Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) at the County level, but partnering with school districts to encourage engagement of parents, teachers, communities and a resource for quality staff development. My goal is to ensure the effectiveness of LCAP in meeting educational goals and expenditures.
    My priority is to monitor the accountability for ALL students, but a particular focus on those who are involved in disciplinary infractions that require county educational assistance. This includes monitoring suspensions, expulsions and detentions.

    I am the wife of a loving and supportive husband, the proud mother of 4 beautiful children, who all attend public schools. We have resided in West County for more than 10 years.
    I am Research General Engineer for the government and a product of public education; I hold a B.A. in Chemistry from Hunter College, M.S. and Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from UC Berkeley. I am also an Educational Parent Advocacy Consultant for the Center for Restorative Solutions, whose purpose is to address the influence of trauma in education.

    My involvement in the community and the WCCUSD has included serving on the Community Budget Advisory Committee (CBAC) for three years and advocating for better tracking of how the parcel tax money was spent and gave presentations to communities on the district’s $300 million budget. Additionally I served as chair of the School Site Council, the Parent Engagement Chair for the Blackboard of WCC, and Co-Chair of the LCAP Video Committee, designed to inform and engage parents as stakeholders in the LCAP process.
