Epi Pen

In the last year, California State Legislature approved SB 1266, establishing policy for the use of Emergency Epinephrine Auto injectors in schools.

In summary, the bill requires school districts to provide emergency epinephrine auto injectors to individual school sites and to train personnel who have volunteered.

Trained personnel may use epinephrine auto injectors to provide emergency medical aid to persons suffering, or reasonably believed to be suffering, from an anaphylactic reaction. Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction which can occur after exposure to an allergen or an insect sting.

All BUSD schools are now compliant with this legislation and are currently in possession of the EpiPen auto injectors and have trained staff familiar with their use.

We remind families that these injectors are for emergency use only and should not be considered supply for students with a known allergy. In accordance with BUSD policy, students with known allergies should provide an updated Allergy Action

Plan and EpiPen to their sites annually. Blank Allergy Action Plans are available at :

Please also be aware your school’s EpiPens are for use on the school campus only. Students on field trips or riding on buses will not have access to the injectors.

Your child’s safety is BUSD’s top priority.

First Day of School Information

We are excited about welcoming your student to or back to Berkeley Technology Academy.

The BTA staff is committed to making your child’s educational experience a lifelong impression. We strive to develop strong healthy relationships with our students and families, keeping them encouraged, engaged, productive academically, socially and physically. This year BTA will be continue to implement a closed-campus lunch for all students to ensure their safety and a quality lunch.

In an effort to welcome you and your child to Berkeley Tech we will have a Student Registration on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 1p.m in the Multi-Purpose room. The student registration will provide you with the opportunity to address any questions or concerns you may have and also allow us to give you information about the school, staff, school policies and procedures.

At the Student Registration we will share the various ways of communicating with our school keeping you informed of your child’s progress, school activities, and events. We will discuss preparing your child for life beyond high school and their day to day successes.

It is our hope to establish ways of working together to secure ongoing support for you and your child throughout the school year.

The first school day for students is on Wednesday, August 27, 2014 8:45am – 3:30pm. School photos will be taken and school identification cards will be given to each student.
