Educational Partners

Thanks to a community that views education as one of its highest priorities, the District is the beneficiary of countless volunteer hours and financial support. PAUSD is especially appreciative of the work and support from the PTA Council, PTAs at each of the schools, and the Palo Alto Partners in Education. In addition to parent groups, the District fosters cooperative relationships and continues to build strategic partnerships with business and civic organizations.
