In a unanimous vote at the July 15, 2020 meeting, the Berkeley Unified Board of Education approved Superintendent Stephen’s recommendation to begin the 2020-21 School Year with distance learning.
- Elementary and middle schools will stay in distance learning for the first eight weeks of instruction, until October 9th.
- High school students will also stay in distance learning, most likely until the December break. The Board of Education will assess the feasibility of transitioning to campus learning sooner, at the quarter break.
- BUSD will begin a phased, prioritized reopening of key programs as soon as the district can implement required risk reduction practices, and contingent on the amendment of current Shelter-in-Place orders.
