The following is the press release from the Piedmont Unified School District regarding Superintendent Constance Hubbard leaving the District on June 30, 2015.


PRESS RELEASE – November 5, 2014

After 12 years as Superintendent of the Piedmont Unified School District, Constance Hubbard announced today that she would not seek to renew her contract that expires on June 30, 2015.

“I wish to thank the members of the Board of Education, both past and present, for their faith and confidence in me over the past fifteen years,” said Superintendent Hubbard. “In every respect, Piedmont has been a remarkable place to work as evidenced by the amazing students who are in our schools. I am proud to have served alongside a truly outstanding corps of educators who first teach from the heart before teaching from the book, a classified staff whose dedication and commitment to their work is unmatched by any group I have encountered, and a team of administrators who tirelessly go about the business of serving the needs of each and every child. Combined with the support of parents and the community, Piedmont is a public school system truly dedicated to serving all students.”

PUSD Board President Andrea Swenson, speaking on behalf of the Board of Education, thanked Superintendent Hubbard for her service and commitment to the Piedmont Unified School District, “We have been fortunate to have a leader for the past 12 years who always first asks the question, ‘what is in the best interest of our students?’ Connie has built a strong team that focuses on academic excellence as well as social-emotional development, acknowledging that we are preparing students not just for college but for life. The Board has high expectations that the foundation that Superintendent Hubbard has built will serve us well as we welcome a new Superintendent. We will all miss Connie, and feel privileged to have worked with her. We wish her all the very best.”

During Superintendent Hubbard’s tenure, Piedmont Unified experienced 12 years of academic excellence. Fostering collaboration between the community and staff, she successfully led the District through an unprecedented state-wide economic recession, oversaw the completion of the Seismic Safety Bond Program, and ushered in numerous curricular advances including the implementation of Common Core Standards, technology initiatives, and much needed social and emotional programs for students.

The PUSD Board of Education will facilitate an open, inclusive search process for the next Superintendent of the Piedmont Unified School District. To ensure a smooth transition for the District, the Board will discuss and approve the search process as part of the Board Agenda of November 12, 2014. It is the Board’s intent to select a search firm and finalize a timeline before the winter holidays in order to begin the search process in January 2015.
