Meet the 2023 Elected Candidates
The 2023 Election Convention is quickly approaching. Very soon, the entire BHS community can read about the elected candidates striving to make positive change on our campus in The 2023 Election Handbook. This resource is broken down by position with the candidate statements, photos, social media accounts, and teacher endorsements. Eligible voters from the Class of 2024, 2025, and 2026, please take some time to review the candidates so that you can make an informed decision when ASB voting takes place in late March.
Applications for elected and appointed positions are open.
new due date is midnight on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24th
STILL OPEN ELECTED CANDIDATE POSITIONS:
a. The BSEP/SSC committee is the most powerful decision-making group on campus, composed of the principal, teachers, administrators, parents, and students. They decide on the school schedule, distribute resources to small schools and programs, and approve the school safety plans. Members also help decide what programs to fund with the $800,000 BSEP fund. Student Court, the RISE tutoring program, Afro-Haitian dance, college/career counselors, and CAS video production are just a few initiatives that have been funded through BSEP. There are 3 positions available with 2 alternates. This position will be voted on in the fall.
b. The Chief of Service ensures that BHS maintains its high reputation for providing service to the greater Berkeley and even global community. You have service requirements – the Chief of Service creates opportunities for you to have fun meeting those requirements.
c. The ASB Vice President fills the shoes of the ASB President in their absence. The ASB Vice President works with the Student Senate to receive input from the student body. Also, the Vice President works with the President to lead the executive team, and to start projects and initiatives to serve the student body.
Contact Mr. V with any questions.

Notification of Non-Discrimination Policy
The Berkeley Unified School District is committed to providing a hostile-free working and learning environment. The District prohibits discrimination, harassment, bullying, intimidation, and retaliation, based on actual or perceived race, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity/expression, pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding/lactation status (related medical conditions), religion, color, national origin (including language restrictions and possession of a driver’s license (issued under Vehicle Code), ancestry, immigration status, physical or mental disability (including clinical depression and bipolar disorder, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, epilepsy, seizure disorder, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and heart attack), medical condition (cancer-related and genetic characteristics), military and veteran status, marital status, registered domestic partner status, age (40 and above), genetic information, political belief or affiliation (unless union related), a person’s association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics, or any other basis protected by federal, state or local law, ordinance, or regulation in any program or activity it conducts or to which it provides significant assistance.
Discrimination is different treatment based on a protected characteristic in the context of an educational program, work or activity without a legitimate, nondiscriminatory reason that interferes with or limits the individual’s ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or privileges provided by the District or includes an adverse employment action.
Hostile environment harassment occurs when a target is subjected to unwelcome conduct based on a protected characteristic, which is both subjectively offensive to the target and would be offensive to a reasonable person of similar circumstances/characteristics and is sufficiently so severe, and so pervasive to interfere with or limit an individual’s ability to effectively work or to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or opportunities offered by the District. Harassment may take many forms, including but not limited to, verbal remarks and name-calling, graphic and written statements, or any conduct that may be threatening or humiliating. Harassment based on any of the above protected categories is a form of unlawful discrimination and will not be tolerated by the District and can result in disciplinary action against the offending student or employee.
Upon witnessing an act of discrimination, harassment, bullying, intimidation, and retaliation, based on actual or perceived protected characteristics, school personnel are required to take immediate steps to intervene when it is safe to do so. Once a school/office has expressed notice or reason to know of such conduct, whether carried out by employees, students, or third parties, it should take immediate and appropriate steps to investigate, determine what occurred, take prompt and effective steps reasonably calculated to end the conduct, eliminate a hostile environment, if one has been created and prevent the conduct from occurring again. These steps should be taken regardless of whether an individual makes a complaint or asks the school/office to take action. Complaints are protected from retaliation. The District prohibits retaliation against any person who files a complaint or an appeal, reports instances of noncompliance, discrimination, harassment, bullying, and intimidation, or who participates in the complaint-filing or investigation process. This nondiscriminatory policy applies to all acts related to school activity or school attendance within any school/office under the jurisdiction of the Berkeley Unified School District.
For more information, or to file a complaint please contact:District Title IX Coordinator/Compliance Officer Berkeley Unified School District, 2020 Bonar Street, Room 117, Berkeley CA 94702 Phone: (510) 486-9338; Email: email@example.com—
