The Berkeley School Board meets approximately twice per month, on Wednesday evenings. All Board meetings are open to the public and we encourage the community to attend.
For the duration of the COVID-19 public health crisis, Board meetings will be held on Zoom. Pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order N-25-20, all members of the Board of Education as well as the Superintendent and District Staff, will join the meeting via phone/video conference and no teleconference locations need be posted.
The zoom link, Meeting ID and Password will be posted here prior to the meeting time.

For the May 5, 2021 meeting, the meeting ID is 812 7040 7356 and the Passcode is 165449.
Unless otherwise noted, open session begins at 7:00pm. The Board will meet beforehand in closed session at 5:30pm. Closed session is for the Board to discuss confidential matters, such as student or employee discipline, or meetings with the District’s legal counsel. State law strictly regulates what matters can be addressed in closed session. Almost all of the Board’s business is conducted in open session.
