The Pasadena Unified School District enrolls more than 19,000 children from Pasadena, Altadena and Sierra…More Madre. It has 29 schools and three charter schools under its jurisdiction. It employs more than 1,000 teachers. The school system is represented by a locally elected school board and has several elementary and middle schools in Altadena, but high school students all attend school in Pasadena. The school board usually meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month.
The district headquarters are scheduled to be relocated from the facility at Hudson sometime in 2011.
