District News


The PUHSD Board of Trustees welcomes student representatives in an advisory capacity to its bi-monthy meetings. The "student voice" is critical to governance conversations as the district continues forward with student-centered initiatives and outcomes. 

Local Control Plan

Pursuant to Ed Code 52060, PUHSD shall adopt a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) (click link to view).  The LCAP is effective for three years with annual updates, must be aligned to the PUHSD's budget, and must include both district-wide goals and goals for specific student populations with the district. Visit our LCAP webpage for more details.

Professional Standards
Across the entire PUHSD, our staff and faculty are committed to a professional code of conduct that is articulated in two documents: Board Policy & Exhibit. And in alignment with the code of conduct, Placer Union is committed as an equal opportunity organization.

School Board
Placer Union's Board of Trustees hold public meetings throughout the school year, including joint meetings with school boards representing local pre-K-8 districts and Sierra Community College. View their agendas online or visit their webpage for meeting dates and details on these five dedicated public servants.
