PYLUSD Parent University
The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District has launched a “Parent University,” offering an array of classes that parents voted as their favorite. “Navigating Middle School” and “Addressing Bullying” are a few of the classes offered.   To see the full list of classes, visit the Parent University Web Page 
All of the classes are offered by teachers, police officers or experts in their respective fields.  Spanish translators are also available, if requested ahead of time via the website registration.  The Parent University page on the website also includes links to resources as well as suggested reading for parents and students to learn more information about specific topics.

Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)
Residents of California (and a few other states) are eligible to participate in the Western Undergraduate Exchange.  This program allows students to attend a participating out-of-state university at a reduced out-of-state tuition rate.  Your residency alone does not guarantee you the WUE rate. Some colleges and universities also have additional criteria such as ACT/SAT test scores or high school GPA.  Apply for admission directly to the WUE institution(s) of your choice. There is no general WUE application. If the institution that you are applying to uses a hard copy application, mark prominently on the form that you seek admission at the WUE rate. For online applications, check the WUE box and if there is not one provided, contact the school admissions office on how to apply for the WUE discounted rate.
