Now, more than ever, our schools need your support.
While this is not the year anyone expected, our district is working hard to ensure that our students continue to have access to the best education possible. Last year, thanks to parent and community support of the Giving Campaign, we were able to provide the funding needed to meet the challenges we currently face. We are once again asking our community for support as the need will be even greater for the 21-22 school year.
Piedmont schools are among the top public schools in California. This year, it will cost $18,000 to educate each student in Piedmont. Every year, state/federal funding and the parcel tax cover the majority of this funding. We as a community are responsible for funding the remaining gap.
PUSD relies on the generosity of parents and the Piedmont community to make up the 9.1% of the budget not covered by federal, state or local funding. To continue our success, it is critical that everyone does their part to support our schools and students.
To give our children access to the best education possible, we must meet this funding need. Please join us in making a meaningful contribution to the Giving Campaign. Together we can achieve excellence in our schools.
