PPIE Message:

 

Happy Holidays! Please View this 4.5 minute video that highlights some new programs at our schools - reading and math intervention at elementary and middle schools, extended library hours, new funding for student wellness, Outdoor Ed bus transportation and more - funded by PPIE.  To keep these programs running, we need your help; otherwise these programs may be at risk.  During the Super Match campaign - running now through the end of tax year to Super Bowl Sunday on February 2 -consider making a donation to PPIE here if you haven’t already done so.  Currently, 14%-34% of school families (depending on the school) support these programs.  If more families donate $200, $100 or even $50, PPIE could fund more enrichment, counseling, art and other great programs at your school. 

Thank you for helping our students be the best they can be!

Free Transit Passes for Qualifying Students

This school year, registered students who are low income at PUSD middle and high schools are eligible to receive a free Student Transit Pass--a youth Clipper card that provides unlimited free access to LAVTA Wheels bus services as well as a 50 percent discount on BART trips and youth discounts on other transit systems.

 

These passes are being distributed as part of the Student Transit Pass Program, sponsored by the Alameda County Transportation Commission and funded through Measure BB, the local transportation sales tax measure.

 

To participate, complete a Transit Pass Program youth application and indicate that your family income qualifies as indicated on the form. Students under the age of 18 must have their parent or legal guardian complete and sign the application. Once the form is submitted and verified by school staff, students will receive a youth Clipper card within one month.

 

If you have questions, please contact Patty Blair at pblair@pleasantonusd.net.
