A Guide to School Zones
Berkeley Unified School District is divided into three zones for elementary schools and two zones for middle schools (with one magnet middle school). The zones were adopted by the BUSD Board of Education on July 13, 1994. In 2010, demographic changes and increased enrollment required Malcolm X and Berkeley Arts Magnet to become two-zone schools. For Fall 2013, LeConte Elementary School is becoming a district-wide Two Way Immersion School open to kindergarten students from all zones.
- Central - Cragmont, Oxford, Washington, Berkeley Arts Magnet, Malcolm X
- Northwest - Rosa Parks, Jefferson, Thousand Oaks, Berkeley Arts Magnet
- Southeast - Emerson, John Muir, LeConte* (grades 1-5), Malcolm X
* LeConte will offer the district-wide Two Way Immersion (TWI) Spanish-English program for incoming kindergarteners. The district-wide TWI program is being phased in at LeConte beginning with all kindergarten classes starting there in 2013. More information on this program will be available at the Information Fair for Kindergarten & New Elementary Families on Dec., 2, 2013 being held at LeConte Elementary.
