School Board

BUSD Board of Education 2016-17

The Berkeley Unified School District Board of Education, also called the School Board, is comprised of five elected directors (also called “members”) and two student directors, one chosen from Berkeley High, and one from Berkeley Technology Academy.  The School Board represents the public’s voice in public education, providing citizen governance over the school district.  The School Board is responsible for employing and evaluating the Superintendent; adopting policies, curriculum, and the District’s budget; overseeing the maintenance and development of facilities in the District; and negotiating and adopting collective bargaining agreements with the District’s four unions.

Members are elected in staggered four-year terms, with two seats on the Board up for election in November of Presidential election years, and three seats in the following even-numbered November election.

Contacting School Board Members:  All school board members have individual email addresses, which are listed below. You can also send one email that goes to all Board members by emailing boardofed@berkeley.net. Elected Board members also have office hours, generally once a month. The office hours for each Board member are listed below. You can also leave a voicemail message for the Board at 510-644-6550.
