Thank You Everyone for a Great Event!

The Berkeley PTA Council Exec Board would like to thank everyone for participating in last night's School Board Candidate Night. While the crowd was intimate, the questions raised, both prepared and live, were those represtantive of the issues of most concern to our learning communities and their families. The candidates gave well reasoned responses for all the questions; a reminder that the full written responses to the prepared questions are on here the site. A special thanks to Laura Babbit from Parents of Children of African Descent (PCAD) for their participation; we hope to have more PTA-PCAD collaboration in the future. And, as always, thank you for our PTA members and school leaders for helping develop the prepared questions and your ongoing work in our school communities.

It was a fun night and the PTA Council learned a lot. We hope that our community did as well and look forward to continued growth in Berkeley PTAs and our partnership with BUSD to deliver on the promise of our kids!
