Berkeley Schools Excellence Program (BSEP)

The citizens of Berkeley have shown their support for the fully rounded education of our children through the Berkeley Schools Excellence Program (BSEP), a parcel tax which funds smaller class sizes, school libraries,  music arts programs, teacher development, and much, much more.  The Berkeley PTA Council and the schools we represent provided strong support for the ballot measures which resulted in the approval of a vast majority of Berkeley voters, 80% in the latest election in 2006. More information about BSEP and how the funds are managed is available on the BUSD BSEP pages.
