Major Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) budget cuts have troubled the School Board and community for years as well as the real possibility that the county step-in and take over the beleaguered district with its budgetary woes but, miraculously, that was averted at the 11th hour.

The Board did, however, eliminate a number of jobs; discontinued general education bus service, made cuts to numerous programs, and closed Cleveland Elementary School last fiscal year.

Now, to take affect on June 25, 2019, PUSD approved the following additional 24 cuts:

  • One (1) bilingual technician.
  • One (1) clerk typist.
  • One (1) computer learning specialist.
