Let's Go Grizzlies

My name is Alphonso Powell and I have been selected to serve as the Athletic Director at California High School. I am a veteran athletic administrator and I’m excited to be a Grizzly. I can't wait to be part of a school with such a rich athletic history. My background and experiences, as a coach, teacher, and an administrator, have prepared me well for this position and I look forward to working with all of you. I am and have always been about the development of the whole student. The focus of our department is  developing well-rounded young people who are college and career ready. They succeed in the classroom, on the field and in the community.

Here is a little summary of my background. After coaching in East Oakland for six years I left the east bay in 2001 returning to my hometown of Sacramento. During that time I served as a head coach in football, basketball, and soccer, as well as a varsity assistant coach in football and basketball. In 2008, I was named Director of Student Athletics for the newly formed Twin Rivers Unified School District, developing athletic policy and standards. I  then spent five years at Keith B. Kenny as an Assistant Principal of a Sacramento City Unified School District Superintendent’s Priority School, before returning to the bay area in 2015 as the Executive Director of Athletics and Activities for the Oakland Unified School District. Most recently, I served at Piedmont High School as Director of Athletics.

As an educator I taught special education for 12 years in Oakland and Sacramento. I also served for five years as the Assistant Principal Keith B. Kenny. The school saw significant gains in API scores with the implementation of our SPSP that provided a focus on high student achievement and building a positive school climate that supports the whole child.
