Piedmont Civic Association Co-Sponsors Forum with LWV and Ed Foundation

The Piedmont Civic Association is pleased to announce its first pubic forum and looks forward to sponsoring more forums focusing on civic topics in the future.  The Piedmont Civic Association will be co-sponsoring a forum on public school funding with the League of Women Voters and the Piedmont Educational Foundation on public school finances.

The forum, to be held on Wednesday, February 16, from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Piedmont Community Center, 711 Highland Avenue, is free and open to the public.  Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions about the financial situation facing California public schools and to provide input by completing a survey.

State Senator Loni Hancock, Tony Smith, Superintendent of the Oakland Unified School District, and Ray Gadbois, board member of the Piedmont Unified School District will be offering their insights and perspectives on school budget challenges, including how two diverse local school districts, Oakland and Piedmont, deploy their financial resources.
