How to Support Piedmont Schools
The Piedmont community has an impressive track-record of supporting the local schools. Since the 1977 Serrano v. Priest decision to equalize per pupil spending throughout the state, and the passage in 1978 of Proposition 13, California’s property tax limitation initiative, local control of school funding has been relinquished to the State. As a result, over the last twenty-two years education financing has become more fragmented and education spending severely constrained. The Piedmont community has remained committed to supporting excellence in its schools. So as not to compromise the quality of the schools’ educational programs during these resource-constrained times, the Piedmont community has pursued a variety of strategies to support the school district.
