SCHOOL CONSOLIDATION AND BOUNDARY COMMITTEE
About the School Consolidation and Boundary Committee
March 16, 2018 Update:With the transformation of schools like Jackson and San Rafael, Pasadena Unified has proved that by tapping the potential of our extraordinary staff, teachers, and community, we can create a mix of vibrant academic programs that accelerates our students’ progress and attracts more families to our schools.
The recommendations developed by the School Consolidation and Boundaries Committee were an important starting point for discussions by the Board of Education. At a special meeting on March 15, the Board of Education opted to indefinitely postpone discussions about school consolidation so that PUSD can first explore ways to maximize our district’s capital assets. We will move quickly to develop a facilities asset management plan that makes the most of our existing properties.
Members of the Committee completed their difficult task with diligence, commitment, and care for children in our schools. We are grateful for their work and look forward to our continued partnership in providing excellent educational opportunities for all our students.The Committee’s recommendations.
School Consolidation and Boundary Committee - Take the Survey!
Pasadena USD's student enrollment has declined from over 24,000 students in the year 2000 to less than 17,000 students today. Over the same time period, the facility capacity has also reduced but there is still a large gap between capacity and enrollment.
Due to increasing budget constraints, resources are spread thin between many schools. In order to better meet the needs of all students, the District must better allocate resources and right-size the number of schools. This is in alignment with the mission and vision of the school district.
This survey is intended to allow community members to share their comments, concerns, and suggestions with the committee members.
