The Poway Unified School District hosted its Third Annual State of the District event on Thursday, November 17, 2022 at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts. The goal of the event was to highlight staff and student accomplishments, set strategic goals and initiatives for the future, cultivate strong business and community partnerships, and share stories of excellence and innovation. Superintendent Phelps and Cabinet members detailed the progress the District has been able to make during and emerging from the pandemic, and the direction PUSD is headed next.
With PUSD’s Vision Statement of “creating culture and conditions to empower world class learners” as the theme, the event incorporated a performance from Poway High School’s Emerald Brigade Drumline as well as dancing and singing in Japanese by Tierra Bonita
Elementary School's Global Language Program. Guests were greeted as they arrived by students from Dr. Phelps’ Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council. Students from Canyon View Elementary's Safety Patrol led the pledge of allegiance, along with the singing of the national anthem by the Bernardo Heights Middle School choir. Board President T.J. Zane welcomed distinguished guests and outlined the Board Goals. The student speaker was PUSD Student Board Member Prisha Puntambekar from Mt. Carmel High School, who spoke about various teachers’ impact on her education and development as a world-class learner. We want to thank all of our stakeholders who attended, for your continued support and partnership.
