We’re Seeking Your Feedback...
The Beach School Site Council is pleased to reach out to you to
ask about your family's experiences at Beach. We are conducting a Family
Engagement & Outreach Survey that our Site Council will use to help shape
our efforts to improve our school. This survey, tailored to our school, will
complement the PPS Successful Schools Survey which was recently completed.
Estamos Buscando Su Contribución…
El Consejo Escolar de la Escuela Beach se complace en
comunicarse con usted para preguntar acerca de las experiencias de su familia
en la Escuela Beach. Estamos conduciendo una Participación Familiar y Encuesta
que nuestro Consejo utilizará para ayudar a nuestros esfuerzos de mejorar
nuestra escuela Beach. Esta encuesta, adaptada a nuestra escuela, complementará
la encuesta de PPS Encuesta para Escuelas Exitosas que se completó
What: In a petition, families explain why their child needs to transfer. PPS evaluates all reasons and also takes into consideration whether there is space available at the requested school.
When: Petition requests may be submitted at any time. But for the best chance of placement, PPS encourages families to submit petitions by June for the next school year.
How: Petition forms are available at the District Office (Enrollment & Transfer Dept).
More information about the petitions:

The PPS School Improvement Bond work was completed in a number of areas throughout the main building, annex and portables this summer. This included seismic strengthening and improved accessibility to bathrooms and the entrance to our portables. In addition, we are excited to announce that two science labs have been built. The Installation of an elevator is still under construction. This will continue for several more months and we are working closely with contractors and district staff to develop plans, so that there will be minimal impact on instruction and access to the building. Ongoing updates will be posted here and noted in our school newsletter.
We are always in need of school volunteers. To become a volunteer you must fill out a background check application. All Background check applications are done online. Please follow the link below to the application.
