Dear Berkeley Unified School District Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the 2014-15 school year! The start of a new school year is an exciting time for all of us.
Great Teams in Every School
We have excellent teams of principals, teachers, and staff in every school working together to use the most effective instructional practices and to strengthen our programs and services. Our schools have the support of a dynamic team of school district leaders and staff who are all committed to offering every student a world class education. We now have a three year plan in place to increase direct services and support to our students and families. As the school year gets rolling, you will be hearing more about the goals and benefits of our new Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).
Expanding the Toolbox
As I enter my second year as Superintendent in Berkeley, my focus will be on ensuring we have strong systems of support for all of our students in every school.
