Pasadena Unified Seeks Applicants for 7-11 Committee

Published : Friday, November 4, 2016 | 12:50 PM

The Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) seeks applicants to serve on its 7-11 Committee. The Committee is being formed to advise the Board of Education on the disposition of property.

The purpose of the committee is to review and analyze PUSD properties known as the former Edison and Burbank Elementary Schools. The committee will help determine whether they should be designated as surplus because they will not be needed for school purposes. Next, the Committee will establish a priority list for the use of the properties, provide community input on acceptable uses, and forward its recommendations to the Board of Education for consideration and approval. It is anticipated that the Committee will meet four times through the end of January 2017.

State law requires that the advisory group be composed of not less than seven and no more than 11 members and must be representative of specific groups in the community, including parents of students, the business community, landowners or renters, teachers, and administrators.

PUSD is seeking applications from residents who live within the district’s boundaries, which include the cities of Pasadena, Sierra Madre, and Altadena. To be considered for membership on a voluntary basis only, applicants must live within Pasadena Unified School District boundaries, but cannot live or own property within 500 feet of the properties.

Interested community members should complete the application and a brief statement regarding their interest in participating on the committee; additional background and/or experiential information will assist the committee and any clarifying information.

Applications may be completed online at or mailed to 740 Woodbury Rd. Pasadena, CA, 91103 Attention Jessica Frazier.

All applications are due Tuesday, November 22, 2016. If you have questions, please contact

Pasadena Unified School District, 351 S. Hudson Ave., Pasadena, (626) 396-3600 or visit
