Our goal is for the Berkeley Unified School District to reopen schools for in-person instruction, to the maximum extent that public health officials permit, when they permit it (again).

School is an essential and fundamental right for each child, no matter where they live
School closures are having a devastating effect on students’ learning, mental health, physical health, and social and emotional well-being
Science and data show that schools can reopen safely for students AND teachers
Private schools in our community are open for in-person instruction; all students deserve the same access to education
Medical experts from the UCSF Emergency Covid Response, LifeLong Medical Care, and Kaiser Pediatric Mental Health present the science on safe school reopening and on the psychological effects of social isolation. Moderated by EdSource. The risks and benefits of in-person school and distance learning are addressed.
"If we knew in March what we know now, we never would have closed schools as a public health intervention."
Dr. Jeanne Noble
Director of Emergency COVID Response
