PUSD holding another 'Connecting with Our Community' meeting

Locals invited to learn about district goals, talk to school leaders

The Pleasanton Unified School District invites locals to a "Connecting with Our Community" meeting, set for this Tuesday evening at Alisal Elementary.

This is the second in a four-meeting series, spaced out over the course of the school year. Tuesday's meeting will kick off with a 30-minute-long presentation on the district’s organizational goals, followed by an hour-long question-and-answer session.

The meeting is an opportunity for all community members to meet and interact with cabinet-level staff and school board trustees, officials say.

The district’s identified goals include implementing strategies to help close achievement and opportunity gaps; improving supportive interventions and enrichments for students; strengthening employee recruitment, development and retention; strengthening and clarifying district policies and regulations at the leadership level; and improving customer service throughout the district.

PUSD’s first community meeting of the year was held on Sept. 13 at Fairlands Elementary. The third and fourth meetings are scheduled for Feb. 5 and April 30, respectively.

Tuesday’s meeting is set to last from 6-7:30 p.m., and will take place in the multi-purpose room at Alisal Elementary, 1454 Santa Rita Road.

Given how busy this time of year is for everyone, this notice is unfortunately very late. The meeting is tonight. How is this information being disseminated to the broader community? If it is only on the district website and through this story, then we are not serving our community very well (I’m sure parents have been informed through schools).

If you are unable to attend tonight, I encourage people to attend in February or April.

Sounds like everything else the PUSD does, lack of planning and very little heads up to the taxpayers, not seeing any mention of a new school or our overcrowded school situation, maybe saving that for later after things get really bad and irreversible

I think the planning was done far enough in advance, just the communication is lacking. There is a December meeting on the new school. I have to dig up that date. Please attend!
