Every district needs accurate and up-to-date policies in order to govern effectively. Producing policies and regulations is a serious task. The Board and school administration reviews existing policies comprehensively to make sure they are legally compliant with any changing state or federal laws and makes local adjustments accordingly.

By clicking the link below, you will be able to research Berkeley Unified School District’s most recently adopted policies. The new policies, along with policies adopted previously, can also be found in hard copy at the district office. If you cannot find a policy online, it will be available in the Superintendent’s District Office (2020 Bonar Street, Berkeley, CA 94702)
