Help BUSD School Become More Sustainable


Have you ever wondered about the impact that BHS has on the environment in the midst of climate change? Do you want to be part of a group of student activists working to make Berkeley High and other BUSD schools more sustainable? Join the electrification campaign at Berkeley High! We are a group of students who want to get BUSD schools to start using electric appliances that don’t rely on fossil fuels. Being part of this group would mean helping educate students about the importance of clean energy use in schools, drafting a policy resolution, designing posters, and talking to school board members. All students are invited to join regardless of their current amount of knowledge about this topic!  Please email naominickolaus@students.berkeley.net to get involved. The meeting times will be based on the availability of people who want to join. 

Thank you!

Need Gender Affirming Clothing?

The Alliance of Gender Expansive Students has raised money to buy gender affirming clothing for students who can not otherwise access it. If you have money to buy the clothing but can’t access it because of other reasons, we can provide the clothing if you give us the money for it. If you don’t have the money for gender affirming clothing, we can use our fundraised money to buy it. However we haven’t fundraised a ton, so if you can pitch in for your clothes please do. 

To get clothes there will be a google form linked in the bulletin email. There will also be posters up around campus with a QR code to the form. Other than a way to contact you, it can be filled out completely anonymously.

Yoga for Teens


The Green Yogi, a local yoga studio is offering a new class for teenagers! The class is called “Inner Compass” and it takes place every Wednesday from 7:15-8:30pm at our studio on Telegraph Ave. The first class is free so please come check it out. There is no need to sign up in advance. This class is designed for teens stepping into their journey of body awareness, self-reflection, movement, meditation, and breathing.

Through practicing yoga, meditating, dancing, journaling, and being given opportunities to share and lead, we will aim to become more connected to ourselves and others. A connection to the self allows us to unlock a newfound resilience and empowerment. When we feel resilient and empowered, we move away from affirming our value from others.

We will explore themes like body positivity, raising your vibration, saying NO, and boundaries.  The green yogi is a completely judgment free zone!

Join the BHS School Safety Committee

Did you know that there is a committee of parents, teachers, students and staff responsible for supporting a safe school environment at BHS? The BHS School Safety Committee has an important job to do, and we need your help. Their responsibilities include drafting next year’s school safety plan that outlines what to do in case of a safety emergency. They also organize an open public meeting about School Safety Plans, and they consult with community members, such as city officials and the Berkeley Police Department to develop policy ideas and collect data.

Supporting a safe school environment involves everybody. If you have 20-30 hours of volunteer time available during the upcoming school year, and want to be actively involved in safety issues, including disaster preparedness, guns and weapons, bullying and harassment, drug use and abuse, this is a great opportunity to make a positive contribution. 


Please let the committee know if you are willing to help by completing a Nomination Form

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: complaints@berkeley.net
