Communicating for Collaboration
Do you want to get alerts about what is going on with PUSD as soon as they are announced – like the upcoming State of the Schools address on September 22 at Eliot Middle School? Do you want to receive regular updates about community and nonprofit activities in Altadena and Pasadena? We’ve tried to keep calendar postings limited to Collaborate PASadena activities, but will try to provide links to relevant school, city and community listservs starting with the list below. We hope you continue discussing your preferences for communication within your Working Groups, in person or through the groupsite discussion features.
