Piedmont Students, Parents & Community,
Please join PUSD educators to discuss Together We Teach &
Explore Piedmont’s guiding educational themes for  
2013 & beyond.
What are the qualities and attributes
Piedmont graduates will need in the coming years?    


Dear Piedmont Parents and Community,

On Saturday, October 5, the District is hosting Shaping Our Future 2.0.  Funded by The Piedmont Educational Foundation, SOF 2.0 is a strategic planning initiative and workshop where parents, students, staff and the greater Piedmont community will collaborate to discuss and draft our guiding educational themes and priorities for the coming years.
This promises to be a wonderfully dynamic exercise that gives every stakeholder group in our district a voice. Therefore it will be especially important to have a broad representation of parents and community members.  We encourage you to join the discussion on Saturday, October 5 at Piedmont Middle School (in the Multi-Purpose Room) from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm.

If you have any questions, please email Superintendent Hubbard’s assistant, Sandy Spiker at sspiker@piedmont.k12.ca.us.

Your support and involvement is greatly appreciated!  Thank you.

Piedmont Portal is Live

Connecting Our Community and Schools


The Piedmont Portal is a joint venture of the Piedmont Educational Foundation (PEF) and the Associated Parent Clubs of Piedmont (APCP). It is positioned as a  “community a go-to source for all things school-related” and they encourage your feedback. I’ve taken a look and think it’s a nice single stop place to find links to information about Piedmont’s schools and educational programs.
