This policy was created to ensure Berkeley is, and remains, an inclusive environment for students, teachers, and community stakeholders. It will be reviewed by administration at the beginning of each year so it remains relevant and up to date.
To provide exceptional care to meet the needs of every student, we at Berkeley recognize that relevant staff may be the recipients of confidential student/family information if it is in the legitimate educational interests of the student and if consent has been received.
