City and School District Collaborate On Joint-Use School

School districts and cities too often operate independently, as within silos, when making capitol investment in public facilities.

The City and school district of Pasadena, California are proving themselves exceptional as they collaboratively explore creating a new community-centered, mixed-use, family friendly school facility. With the assistance of the nonprofit organization, New Schools / Better Neighborhoods (NSBN), they are working closely together to launch a community conversation about the best location for a new joint-use school in Northwest Pasadena. NSBN interviews Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard, Pasadena Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Percy Clark, and Assistant Superintendent Eva Lueck in which they discuss their joint planning efforts.
