Dear Berkeley High Parents and Guardians,

Our next PTA Council meeting of the year is scheduled for this Monday, November 23rd, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. As usual, the meeting will take place in the technology classroom on the ground floor of BUSD administrative offices in room 126 at 2020 Bonar Street. Gioia pizza will be served!

We are very excited to announce this month's guest speaker, BUSD researcher, teacher, and parent Dave Stevens, who will discuss his exciting work on developing the Academic Support Index (ASI) to refine student demographic data as a means to objectively identify at-risk students, target intervention work, and evaluate programs. It has a strong correlation with academic outcomes including GPA, the high school exit exam, and UC eligibility rates. Come hear Dave present on the ASI and find out why parents think it's phenomenal, teachers say it really works, and how BHS has benefited from it. Dave's work has attracted national attention as a model for assessments.

And as always, we will have a chance to introduce ourselves, and share what's going on at our school sites. We are here to collaborate and support each other, and we appreciate how much time and heart it takes to be a PTA leader.

Council Meeting Dates for 2015-2016: Meetings will take place on the fourth Monday of each month. Here is a list of the dates, so that you can mark your calendars: November 23rd, (No December meeting), January 25th, February 22nd, March 21st (3rd Monday - Spring Break), April 25th, and May 23rd, (June - no meeting).

All meetings take place at 2020 Bonar Street, in the district technology classroom, room 126, and run from 6:30- 8 p.m. We always serve pizza and drinks. We have some awesome topics to discuss, so please come participate in our discussions.

See you there!
