Berkeley Unified to pause live video instruction

Educators in the Berkeley Unified School District will temporarily pause live video instruction, according to a letter to families Wednesday from Superintendent Brent Stephens.

Stephens said during a lesson via the Zoom video conferencing system Tuesday, a man “exposed himself to students” and yelled obscenities. The letter says the teacher immediately ejected the man from the conference and police were notified. Police have not said whether anyone has been arrested.

Stephens said Zoom is making changes to better reflect the needs of a classroom setting. He said hopes to resume live instruction in a few days.
