“Students Come First” in the Piedmont Schools. Educators work hard to provide all students with a comprehensive, rigorous and relevant K-12 curriculum. Parent participation in classrooms, on fieldtrips, on boards and committees is very high. Residents demonstrate their commitment to education in a variety of ways, but most importantly, through a parcel tax contributing approximately $9.0 million, nearly one third of the district budget, yearly.
Piedmont students from all schools will be participating in the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments, which are part of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System in May.
Katie Korotzer, a long-time volunteer who played a vital role in creating the Fall Fest 5k, securing passage of the education parcel tax, and streamlining fundraising and grants for the Piedmont schools, will be honored with this year’s Arthur Hecht award.
