The Pathways for Adult Life Skills (PALS) Program is operated through the Perris Union High School District. The program is designed to provide services to students 18-22 years old who have a Certificate of Completion and an IEP. The PALS Program was developed to promote students independence as well as job skills as they transition from high school to their next stage in life.

PALS shares the mission and vision of Perris Union High School District:


The mission of Perris Union High School District is to create high quality relevant learning opportunities for all in a safe and caring environment.

We will care for all students while developing a growth mindset through collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking.


Perris Union High School District will be a caring, diverse, and supportive learning environment in which all are committed towards working in relationships to foster innovative and creative learning opportunities.
