The Berkeley Unified School District Board unanimously approved changes to the site plan of the Franklin Adult School at their Wednesday meeting. 

The revised plan—pushed by neighbors of the proposed school site—reorients the project to face San Pablo Avenue, diverting most school traffic is diverted from residential streets around the school. 

Last week, Caltrans approved a driveway for the site, setting the stage for Wednesday’s board vote. 

The future of a proposed playground at the school remains in limbo, with neighbors planning to meet Nov. 17 to gauge the level of community support.
