Announcement - PUSD

Take a "Deep Dive" into the Piedmont USD Budget!

To build a common understanding about the District’s operating budget and promote transparency with the Piedmont community, Piedmont USD will be bringing a new format to the District’s Budget Advisory Committee (BAC).

The BAC is open to all stakeholders of the school community and public in an effort to provide access to learn about PUSD’s budget. Piedmont wants to give additional opportunities for everyone to take a “deep dive” into our budget process, so the BAC will now be meeting each month. Every other month we’ll meet in the afternoons (3:30-5:00pm), and then every other month during evening hours (7:00-8:30pm).

Whether you’re a Piedmont parent (including empty nesters!) or a civic-minded community member, we encourage everyone to attend any (or all) BAC meetings to better understand the budget for Piedmont’s outstanding public schools.
