In light of the rise across the country of xenophobia, racism and homophobia during and following the presidential election, I have requested that a resolution be presented to the board for a vote so that we can publicly demonstrate our commitment to all of our students, no matter what their race, religion, sexual orientation, national origin or immigration status may be. The resolution, if passed, will reaffirm our district's commitment in providing a safe, inclusive and supportive learning environment for all of our students.
Also, during the board meeting, there will be presentations on the:
- Preliminary Master Schedule for School Construction
- Design for Construction of New Math Building Project at South Pasadena High School - Bob Simons, SVA Architects
Below, you can read some recent SPUSD NEWS:
- December 20 - The South Pasadena Unified School District (SPUSD) School Board voted to approve a construction delivery methodology and the international infrastructure company, Balfour Beatty, as construction manager for its bond program – Measure SP. The Board selected the company after the District completed interviews, reference checks, site visits, and a financial review and discussed the results at length during the public board meeting on December 13, 2016. The Board also heard a follow-up presentation and participated in a question and answer session with District legal counsel and representatives from the construction firm before voting to approve the selection of Balfour Beatty at its bond workshop held on December 17, 2016.

December 13 - Collaboration between the Monterey Hills Elementary School (MHS) PTA and SPHS art students resulted in several beautifully painted outdoor umbrellas, which are now installed at the tables on the MHS playground. Led by high school art teacher Aimee Levie, students decorated the umbrellas in a Keith Haring style intended to unify the artwork with the subject of children, playgrounds, and the school’s mascot, the roadrunner. The school’s colors of yellow and green are artfully represented on the umbrellas with supplies paid for by the PTA.
