|From Our Superintendent:
Dear Parents and Community Members,
When we share that our goal is to
have every student graduate college ready, what does this mean? By college
ready, we mean that students will graduate with a strong foundation in reading,
writing, and mathematics and the knowledge and skills needed to be prepared for
college or other postsecondary training.
We are proud to have
our Superintendent, Don Phillips, recognized for his efforts on behalf of our
school district. He is seen here (center) on the cover of District
Administration magazine. The article talks about how seven districts have
joined together to collaborate, share best practices, and most of all, improve
the education they offer their students.
Unveils New Website
In the world of online communication it is important to
change web pages periodically to maintain interest and encourage frequent
visits. We are trying to give our users a lot of valuable information on this
new homepage. We created new pages especially for our Parents, Students,
and Staff. We also have easy navigation available on every page.
Our goal was to make accessible a lot of material about
PUSD without having to click multiple times to find that information.
We hope that you find PUSD’s new homepage and
accompanying pages user friendly.
