Online Enrollment Still Available for Pasadena Students
Though online, PUSD will continue to offer specialized programs and curricula
The Pasadena Unified School District will begin the school year August 17th with a 100 percent remote learning model, including structured daily schedules, daily live interaction, and standards-based curriculum. The district will also use new technology tools with additional features for live classroom environments and small-group learning, including WebEx for video-conferencing and Canvas for its online learning management system.
According to Shannon Mumolo, the district’s Coordinator for Signature Programs, magnet schools and schools with specialized programs will also continue to offer their own distinct programs.
“Students and families who enrolled in a specialized program can continue to look forward to a school year of learning experiences that meet their unique learning needs and interests.”
“Altadena Arts Magnet, for example, will continue to offer specialized arts programming in the online format, including live and recorded lessons in dance, music, theatre arts, media arts, and visual art. Popular dual language immersion programs and the Early College Magnet program will also offer high quality, online programming until it’s safe for schools to reopen.”
While the district will kick-off the school year online, parents will be asked to indicate later this fall whether they want their student(s) to stay with the online-only model or participate in a hybrid model that includes in-person instruction in smaller cohorts once it is deemed safe to offer in-person instruction.
