On June 15, 2022, after more than four years of consideration by staff and the Berkeley community, the Board of Education unanimously voted to implement a new, three-zone assignment policy for middle school, beginning in the Fall of 2023.
In 1968, Berkeley Unified voluntarily integrated all schools. Our commitment to this important and precious legacy continues to be a primary value in our community, and was one of the key drivers of staff’s recommendation, and the School Board’s decision, to better integrate our middle schools with a three-zone assignment system.
