Welcome To Child Welfare and Attendance

  • The aspiration of the Child Welfare and Attendance Department is to promote student success. We believe in the fundamental principle of equity and fair treatment of all Pasadena Unified School District students. All students will be provided fair access and opportunity to comprehensive services that meet their needs.
