Pasadena Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Brian McDonald welcomed teachers, administrators, and employees to the 2022-2023 school year at a virtual kickoff that honored the Teacher, Principal, Classified Employee, and Hero of the Year, along with the recipients of the Superintendent’s Awards. “The new school year brings with it excitement and hope, and new challenges,” he said.
There is much to look forward to this year – more amazing academic achievements, more exciting athletic competitions, and more extraordinary student performances. We have added a new Armenian world language program at Webster Elementary, launched Ethnic Studies courses at high schools, and offered opportunities to extend the learning day with before and after school programs.
At last night’s meeting, the Pasadena Unified Board of Education approved revisions to COVID safety protocols. The following revisions are now in place at all PUSD schools. Outdoor in-person meetings/activities with parents/guardians, community members, staff, and students are now allowed with masking strongly recommended.
