Attached is our annual update of the Parent Student Handbook. It is filled with information about Berkeley Unified School District programs and policies as well as contact information for school and district offices.
The 2015-2016 Parent Student Handbook, which includes the Alameda County Office of Education’s 2015-2016 Notice to Parents, provides students and their guardians with specific Education and Government codes, as required by law, as well as information about District programs and policies. Please use this handbook as a reference throughout the school year.
Using the link above, you can either download the handbook (as a PDF file), or go to the table of contents to find the specific program, procedure, or form you need.
Please note that the handbook includes a number of forms for you to review and sign. More information was provided by email to all families last week. There is a”verification of receipt” on page 4 and there are optional forms on pages 41-44. Please print and return the relevant forms to your student’s school, and use the handbook as a reference throughout the school year. Printed handdbook copies will also be available at your school soon, and the Spanish translation will be available within the next 10 days.
The Berkeley Unified School District teachers and staff look forward to serving you and your student this school year.
