The School Quality Stakeholder Survey is open through May 4!
At PUSD, we’re committed to ongoing dialogue. That means listening to you about the education and services we provide. 
That’s why we need to hear from every parent and guardian in our School Quality Stakeholder Survey. This is your chance to share feedback on student support, academic preparation, safety and behavior, school leadership, and family involvement - as well as how we as a community responded to the pandemic. The results will help inform areas of focus in the coming school year.

The online survey is offered in English, Spanish and Chinese. Students and staff, please check your email for an invitation and survey link. Parents and community members can take the survey at You have through Tuesday, May 4 to participate. All responses are strictly confidential.
For more information, please contact Patrick Gannon, [email protected].
May 7th is School Lunch Hero Day!
