THE ED HUB @ Berkeley Unified

A Partnership of BUSD & the Berkeley Public Schools Fund

Our hours are Tuesdays & Thursdays from 3-5pm.
The Ed Hub will be closed April 4-8.

The Ed Hub is BUSD’s centralized distribution site for educational resources during COVID-19. The drive-through site (see directions below) allows for BUSD families to pull in, pick up essential learning supplies, and head back home while staying safely inside their car.

OPEN Tuesdays & Thursdays from 3-5 for Chromebook and hotspot check-out and returns.

Students and families can come to the Ed Hub for:

  • Technology needs (Chromebooks, computer exchanges, power cables, earbuds, internet tools, or tech support)*
  • Spanish-speaking support for any of the above

The Ed Hub is a partnership between the BUSD and the Berkeley Public Schools Fund – the single, centralized distribution site for BUSD families to pick up needed supplies. We need 2 volunteers (including 1 Spanish speaker) per shift to run the Ed Hub smoothly!
