January Meetings on School/City Work Plan Announced


PASADENA, Calif.—A series of meetings are being held in January for interested stakeholders to help focus strategies being developed by the City of Pasadena and the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) as part of the 2013-15 School/City Work Plan.  The first successful meeting was held today, with several more planned throughout the month. 

Feedback is needed to ensure the work of partnering agencies and educators is captured in the Plan’s strategies.  The Work Plan will be presented at the Annual Joint Meeting of the PUSD Board of Education and City Council at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 19, in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 100 N. Garfield Ave. 

The Draft Work Plan and additional outreach information regarding the annual Joint Meeting is available at www.cityofpasadena.net/humanservices.  Or, contact Lisa Fowler, Human Services and Recreation Dept., at lfowler@cityofpasadena.net.  

The Draft 2013-15 School/City Work Plan was developed to align PUSD, the City and available community resources around specific results to bring greater accountability in student achievement and quality of life outcomes while also addressing service gaps and avoiding duplication of services.  The Work Plan builds on existing commonalities and shared values.  Although no new PUSD or City funds are identified, the Work Plan’s success is seen in the positioning of resources towards key results and the partnerships created. 

PUSD and the City are committed to working together to foster 21st century learning skills that improve student outcomes, support our local economy and ensure the City grows as a local and global center of innovation.
