2020 Vision for Berkeley's Children & Youth

2020 Vision is a citywide movement to ensure academic success and well-being for all children and youth growing up in Berkeley, by closing the achievement gap in Berkeley's public schools by the year 2020. The 2020 Vision began with a campaign by United in Action, a community-driven multi-ethnic coalition, to eliminate inequities in educational opportunities in Berkeley public schools. In June 2008, the Berkeley City Council and Berkeley Unified School District School Board adopted formal resolutions stating:

. ..all children, regardless of race, ethnicity and income, who enter Berkeley public schools beginning in 2007 (and remain in the district) will achieve equitable outcomes with no proficiency differences by the time they graduate in June, 2020; and that all children born in Berkeley in 2007 and beyond, receive a healthy start and are equally ready to learn and succeed in the Berkeley public schools.

The 2020 Vision is an ongoing collaboration between the following partners: City of Berkeley, Berkeley Unified School District, Berkeley Alliance, University of California- Berkeley, Berkeley City College, United in Action, Berkeley Federation of Teachers, Berkeley Organizing Congregations for Action, and the Berkeley Community.
