Welcome to the Office of Communications

The Poway Unified School District strives to give the community ongoing information about its schools, programs, and students. All work supports our District vision and mission, and is guided by the 2021-24 Strategic Communications Plan

The Communications Department facilitates communication with internal and external audiences and builds and maintains relationships to continue the high level of community engagement throughout PUSD and our schools. 

Strong, proactive communication is the foundation for a strong public school district.
