A Message from Superintendent Dr. Glenn "Max" McGee
Dear PAUSD community,
Dear PAUSD high school students, teachers, administrators, and parents,
Dear PAUSD Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,
I hope that the 2016-17 school year continues to be one of great accomplishments and celebrations for you and your children. It has also been a busy one, especially for many of our seniors who are working on their college applications. In fact, in the last couple of weeks, our Board of Education has discussed an important component of the college admission process—a student’s grade point average (GPA).
Dear PAUSD Parents and Guardians,
I hope you have enjoyed the start of this school year as much as we have enjoyed having your children back in our schools participating in high quality teaching and learning!
Dear PAUSD Community,
I am excited to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year!
With our students at the center of PAUSD’s work, the school district’s Strategic Plan guides the work that we do throughout the school year. The five components of the Strategic Plan – Academic Excellence and Learning, Personal Development and Support, Innovative Staff Development and Recruitment, Optimized Budget and Infrastructure, and Governance and Communications – form the basis for improvement efforts in important aspects of the district’s operations.
