Input Sought on Piedmont Schoolmates Program


The City of Piedmont is seeking resident input on important items regarding Schoolmates program in 2018-19 and beyond. It is the City’s intention to continue to offer before and after school care at each of the three elementary school sites through the Schoolmates program. Our priority is to continue to deliver a high quality program that meets resident needs.

Together with consultant Decide LLC, we have been busy working on our plan for Schoolmates 2018-19 and beyond. Based on our experiences during this first year of full-day kindergarten and as we plan for the future, we would like to get feedback on some key items: •

  • Extending Schoolmates hours (e.g., open at 7:00am and/or close at 6:30pm) •
  • Registration and billing •
  • The desire for flexible scheduling •
  • The desire for block scheduling •
  • Offering a monthly Friday or Saturday evening “date night”

There will be four opportunities to join in the conversation.

We plan to meet at each Schoolmates location, however, if you are unable to attend the meeting at your child’s school, please come to the one that is most convenient for your schedule.

  • Beach Schoolmates – Monday, January 29th – 7:00 pm •
  • Havens Schoolmates -Thursday, February 1st – 7:00 pm •
  • Havens Schoolmates – Saturday, Feb 3rd – 10:00 am •
  • Wildwood Schoolmates – Thursday, February 15th – 7:00 pm

If you plan on attending, please send an RSVP to prd@piedmont.ca.gov and note the date you plan on attending. In addition, if you are unable to come to any of the meetings, and would like to provide input, please email maria@decidellc.com and we will follow up with you directly.
