Education in Piedmont: Planning for the Future

Do you have ideas about what an education in Piedmont schools should be?  An October 5th Workshop offers an opportunity for all to participate in Piedmont’s educational goals.

SHAPING OUR FUTURE 2.0 Collaborative Discussion and Strategic Planning Workshop on October 5

Piedmont students, parents and community are invited to join PUSD educators to explore Piedmont’s guiding educational themes for 2013 and beyond at a workshop on Saturday, October 5, 2013 from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

The school district will host a long-range planning workshop for teachers, parents and members of the community.  Everyone is invited to attend and participate.  The workshop will be in the Piedmont Middle School Multi Purpose Room at 740 Magnolia Avenue in Piedmont.

The workshop, called “Shaping Our Future 2.0,” will develop themes and priorities that will guide district policy concerning the K-12 educational program for the next several years.  The district is seeking a wide diversity of input.

“Co-hosted by the Piedmont Educational Foundation, the workshop will provide an opportunity to: learn about the federal, state and local context for public K-12 educationinform the district’s planning and decisionmaking; and influence funding priorities of the district and Piedmont Educational Foundation.  This is a critical opportunity for teachers, administrators, parents and community members to collaborate on the changing needs and innovations of public education.  The district held a similar two-day workshop in 2009, which was very well-attended and which helped define district priorities over the last several years.”

  Lunch will be provided. 

Parents and community members interested in participating should commit to the full day workshop. To RSVP, please send a statement of interest with your name, address, and telephone number to by Sept 26th. Questions? Please email the Superintendent’s Assistant, Sandy Spiker at
