We hosted "Blast of STEAM" camps in June for future PUHSD students---6th, 7th, 8th graders---and the kids and our high school camp interns truly had a blast. Offered in partnership with UC Davis School of Education, the camps were delivered by talented and enthusiastic teachers with a passion for science, technology, engineering, art and making. Check out the flier.

Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, the Board of Trustees will welcome student representatives in an advisory capacity to its bi-monthly meetings. The "student voice" is critical to governance conversations as the district continues forward with many student-centered initiatives and outcomes. 

Placer Union is committed to equal access, and ensuring that our website is accessible to all is part of that effort. The district is making important webpage updates using a quality assurance tool---Site Improve---which helps identify critical issues in need of attention. If you experience difficulty accessing a page, link, or document, please contact Gregg Ramseth at gramseth @ Thank you.
