Dear Jefferson families:

Are you passionate about the environment and sustainability? Want to make your opinions and feedback heard about a project that could make an impact on the Berkeley Unified School District for years to come? The Berkeley Unified School District’s Facilities Department is excited to announce the launch of a year-long process to create and begin the implementation of a Sustainability and Resiliency Master Plan, to reduce the environmental footprint of schools and promote environmental literacy, which which we believe are fundamental to a high-quality 21st century education. We welcome the input from all members of the BUSD community to co-create this Plan! Now is the time to tell us what BUSD is already doing to go green, and your ideas about how we can do even better!

Here’s how you can get involved:

  • Attend the Sustainability Master Plan Kickoff meeting on March 20th, 4-6:30 pm in the Longfellow Middle School cafeteria. You’ll learn about the benefits of going green, speak out about topics related to sustainability, contribute to the ideas of the Master Plan. Please RSVP here.

  • Take our survey: Make your voices heard! If you take this brief survey your name will be included as part of a raffle to win a gift certificate to Gather Restaurant and other great prizes! Take the survey here.
