Berkeley High School Development Group (BHSDG) – BHSDG is an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation founded in 1991 by a group of parent volunteers to ensure the quality and excellence of Berkeley High School. In 2017-18, BHSDG managed over $500,000 in donations and other revenues. With these funds, BHSDG was able to make grants for a wide range of equipment and educational enrichment opportunities.

Berkeley Schools Excellence Project (BSEP) – As a community response to school funding shortages in the wake of Proposition 13, the Berkeley Schools Excellence Project (BSEP) has made a huge difference in the quality of our children’s education.

Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) – The overarching committee of elected board members that makes decisions on district related issues.

School Site Council (SSC) –  In the Berkeley Unified School District, each school has a School Governance Council (though the high school operates slightly differently, see below) which combines the responsibilities of the state-mandated School Site Councils (such as writing the School Plan and allocating certain state funds directed to schools) as well as the duties of looking at all school spending including BSEP Site Funds, a portion of special local funds that go directly to school sites.
