PEN provides resources to help parents explore their PUSD school options and to engage effectively with schools and the District once their children are enrolled.
Whether your child is not yet in school, new to PUSD, or approaching a transition grade, PEN can help you learn about schools, connect with parents of children enrolled in the schools you are considering, and help you navigate the enrollment process. Resources include school fact sheets, our Parent Ambassador directory, notes from our parent education programs, school tour calendar, parent coffees and more.
Parent engagement is a decisive factor in student achievement, and the engagement and leadership of PEN members has helped to transform and support schools across PUSD. PEN supports parent engagement by offering on-site parent engagement programs and leadership development workshops and by creating opportunities for parent leaders to network and learn from each other.
In addition to helping parents explore their options and engage effectively, PEN encourages families to learn about issues and developments affecting education – and to tap local, state, and national resources.
