At the festival there will be information and presentations about PUSD signature programs such as Mandarin and Spanish Dual Language Immersion, International Baccalaureate, College & Career Pathways, and the district’s new magnet schools (See below for presentation schedule and topics). There will also be activities for kids, information about preschool and afterschool programs, and free immunizations required for students to attend school (for uninsured or Medi-Cal eligible children). Festival attendees can enter a raffle to win a family membership to Kidspace Museum or a full scholarship to the Pasadena Educational Foundation Summer Enrichment Program.

The timing of the festival coincides with the district’s Open Enrollment process which runs from January 9-February 6. Open Enrollment is an opportunity for district students to apply to a school other than the one they attended in 2013-2014 or for those enrolling in PUSD for the first time and interested in applying to a school other than their neighborhood school.  Staff will be available at the festival to help parents complete the online Open Enrollment application. Open Enrollment applications can also be submitted online at openenrollment.info.

Spanish translation will be provided for all presentations. For more information about PUSD schools visit gopusd.com/schoolguide or call 626-396-3606.
