We understand that a great public education isn’t free. Piedmont schools spend funds beyond what they receive from the state and from local taxes to ensure that our student to staff ratio stays low, that our children have access to libraries and librarians, art and music, teachers with S.T.E.A.M. training, electives, A.P. classes, counselors, and special education.
Our schools are severely underfunded and the programs most important to our children are at risk. It is up to us, as parents and community members, to help offset the 10% of the budget not covered by taxes and state funding. This gap is $4.3 million, or $1,658 per student.
Please join us in making a meaningful contribution to the Giving Campaign. Together we can achieve excellence in our schools.
Every contribution makes a difference and participation matters! We absolutely welcome and encourage gifts of any and all levels. Families should give what is meaningful for them, and that differs from family to family. We have a vast range of gift sizes within our donor community – from $50 to $50,000 – and each one of these has an impact on our students.
