The Berkeley PTA Council, the umbrella organization for all BUSD PTAs and
PTSAs, has voted to endorse the parcel tax measure known as BSEP, which
will be on the November ballot. Please join us this Sunday from 3-4pm at
the Frances Albrier Community Center, 2800 Park Street (at San Pablo Park)
for a Community Event <http://www.bsep2016.org/campaign_kickoff> to launch
the next BSEP measure!
BSEP renews critical funding for our public schools, providing over
$700,000 per year in school discretionary funds for Berkeley High, and also
provides over $25 million in district-wide funding that reduces class sizes
by paying for 1/3 of all teachers in the District, as well as paying for
all of our school libraries and staff, our music program in grades
4-8, (and the new measure will now include supplies for BHS music
programs!) instructional technology, and much, much more. The funds from
BSEP constitute 20% of the entire budget for the district!
The School Board voted to put the measure on the ballot at its May 18th
meeting, and noted that the proposed measure renewal involved the
participation of many parents, students, teachers, staff and community
members in multiple community meetings to discuss the priorities for our
schools. An overview of the proposed measure can be found on the District
Marguerite Fa-Kaji, Catherine Ference and Dylan Kaufman are the
parent-volunteer facilitators of the Etree; please direct any questions
