Because of PEN, school communities are stronger, parents are more engaged, and schools throughout the Pasadena Unified School District have improved and continue to make gains. Annually, more than 5,000 parents participate in PEN’s programs and services, creating communities of support throughout our school district. Please support our vision: that we live in a community that supports public education, where parents choose to send their children to our public schools, and are actively involved in their education.

Go Public: A Day in the Life of PUSD

PEN partnered with Blue Field Productions (Dawn & James O’Keeffe) to facilitate production and distribution of their 2012 film about the Pasadena Unified School District. The aim of this project was to Go Public with public school by inviting viewers to meet the individuals who make a public school district work, and to show the true spirit and texture of how a school district functions.
