Berkeley PTA Council Hosts School Board Candidate Night

Wednesday, October 29, 2014 - 2:00am to 3:30am

Martin Luther King Jr., Middle School, 1781 Rose Street, Berkeley, CA

The Berkeley PTA Council, the representative body for the Berkeley School PTAs, is pleased to announce a special opportunity to hear candidates for the Berkeley School Boards address issues of concern to the PTA community. With active units in every BUSD school, the PTA is a major representative organization for our students and their community and is uniquely situated to understand the challenges and opportunities of the District. This special event is designed to provide an opportunity for candidates to address concerns of the community they hope to represent.

Questions for the candidates will be generated by the PTA membership and provided to the candidates before the event for written responses. Responses will be published on the Berkeley PTA Council website ( and the candidates will provide their answers to selected questions at the event. Time will also be reserved for audience questions at the event.

This is the first time in recent elections that the Berkeley PTA Council will host a candidates event. The community the PTA represents is the most directly impacted by actions of the Berkeley School Board. We hope that this event will be both meaningful and informative to the Berkeley community and invite everyone to join us.
