Enrollment and Capacity Planning - Dealing with Overcrowding in BUSD

Berkeley schools have historically gone through boom-and-bust cycles in our student population. Both ends of these cycles cause both financial and educational issues which call for more holistic approaches to ensure that all our students have equal resources to succeed. The Berkeley PTA Council and our member school units are committed to working with BUSD administration and School Board to establish plans and monitoring processes to reduce the disruption caused by shifts in demographics and demand on facilities.
