IMPORTANT PARENT COMMUNICATION
Good morning PUSD community.
Our phone system was damaged by the recent storms. We are not able to make or receive calls at Pioneer Elementary School or Mountain Creek Middle School. If you have an emergency and need to contact our staff, please go to Quick Links on our website to access staff email addresses.
You may also report student absences through e-mails. We have contracted to replace our phone system and will notify you when the new system is in place. Thank you for your patience and effort in communicating with our staff during this critical period.
Welcome to Pioneer Union School District
Home of Pioneer Elementary School, Mountain Creek Middle School and Walt Tyler Elementary School. Our district was founded in 1958 through the unification of these small, rural schools:
In our schools every child is safe, engaged and learning every day.
It is our mission to provide all children with opportunities to: academically excel to their capacity, develop the skills to become self confident and become contributing members of a global society.
This mission is accomplished through our core values.
We welcome your ideas and your partnership!

Important Information Regarding Confidential Student Data
In the interest of keeping our parents and families current with educational legal landscapes and regulations, please find the following information regarding students who have special needs.
In April 2012, two organizations, the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association, filed a lawsuit against the California Department of Education (CDE) alleging widespread, systemic non-compliance by local education agencies with special education laws. The suit also alleges the CDE fails to monitor, investigate and correct such non-compliance in accordance with the law. The CDE denies these allegations and is actively defending the litigation.
The Pioneer Union School District was not involved in the lawsuit and is not the subject of any of the suit’s allegations.
Nonetheless, as a part of this lawsuit, CDE has been ordered by the court to release all data it has collected on general and special education students since January 1, 2008. For more information regarding the release of this data visit: http://www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase
Please note the CDE will notify parents/students if their data will be collected, and those individuals may object directly to the court using the following form: http://www.cde.ca.gov/re/di/ws/documents/form2016jan26.pdf
