Pomona Unified School District or PUSD serves approximately 30,000 Pre-K-12 students and 17,000 adult learners at 44 schools in Pomona and Diamond Bar, California. It is located 30 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, and is the third-largest school district in Los Angeles County.

In 1995 the school district bought the former Indian Hill Mall, a failing shopping center built in the 1960s, and redeveloped it into an educational, commercial and retail complex called The Village at Indian Hill.[1]

In November 2008, 75% of voters approved Measure PS, a $235 million school bond measure, to provide for the renovation of schools. The first of the Measure PS projects were completed in summer 2009. Another round of projects was set for summer 2010, at 21 schools.

Board of Education members are elected to a four-year term. The elections are held on a first Tuesday after the first Monday in November of even-numbered years effective with the 2018 election.
