Piedmont is committed to creating safe and inclusive environments at each of our schools.  Our vision is to create a school culture where everyone belongs.  Progress towards this is made by creating inclusive environments where all individuals feel safe, valued, cared for and seen for all parts of their identity.  

Two school board policies anchor and guide the work of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging for our district:
