At its first meeting since school was back in session, the school board will again try to approve a policy on the use and installation of cameras at Berkeley High School. 

The policy has been mulled over the past two meetings, and approval has been delayed. 

In addition, Superintendent Jack McLaughlin said he plans to ask the board to approve a $5,000 implementation policy for a possible food court at Berkeley High. 

The board will recess to closed session at 6 p.m., and the regular meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. The board will also discuss:  

• Acceptance of a $1,000 contribution to the English Department at Berkeley High School for dictionaries for the English Department classrooms. 

• Approval of an agreement with Pleasanton Unified District for data processing services 

• Approval of Berkeley High School Health Center domestic violence prevention program. 

• Discuss a plan for 4th grade transition at two-way English-Spanish immersion sites. 

The meeting is in the Board Chambers at 2134 Martin Luther King Jr. Way. It is televised on TV-
