Dear Board Members:

BUSD Labor Negotiations Need Resolution.

BUSD Director Vacancy Applications

In March, 2013, Leah Wilson resigned her seat on the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) Board of Directors. On March 27, 2013, the remaining Board members guided by BUSD staff developed a process to fill the vacancy. Details of the process are available on the District website.

School Board Election Results

With essentially all the votes in Berkeley counted, the indication is that Judy Appell will be joining the re-elected Beatriz Leyva-Cutler and the three incumbent members to form the new Berkeley School Board. Congratulations to Judy and Beatriz. The new board will be constitued at the first meeting in 2013. SInce there are four of the five current members continuing on the Board, there should be little interruption of actions important to our schools, the most critical being the hiring of a new superintendent to lead BUSD.
