PUSD Board Members Prepare for Annual Retreat

Published on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 | 5:22 pm

The Pasadena Unified School District’s Board of Education is preparing to go on its annual retreat, this time virtually, to discuss important issues for the year ahead.

There haven’t been any details as to what will be discussed, but a few members of the board remain optimistic about the coming year.

The board’s special meeting Thursday, which begins at 4 p.m., has only the upcoming board retreat process and possible agenda items on the agenda. 

“The board will decide on the agenda for the retreat when it discusses it in Thursday’s meeting,” said Board President Scott Phelps. “The tentative intent of the retreat is to determine priorities for the district to focus on during the next 11 months, to provide formal direction to the superintendent and staff for the year.” 

Board Vice President Elizabeth Pomeroy said the retreat process will also determine what future budgeting to recommend based on those priorities. 

“We continue to appreciate our dedicated staff and teachers, in partnership with PUSD families, who are all working so hard to keep education moving forward in these pandemic times,” Pomeroy added. 

The last time the PUSD Board of Education had a retreat was on Oct. 20. 

Since the Elbie J. Hickambottom Board Room #236 at 351 S. Hudson Ave. remains closed to the public, meetings are held virtually and broadcast live on Charter Cable Channel 95, and on the internet at

Rebroadcasts are aired several times during the week. To get the schedule, call (800) 912-KLRN or visit
