On November 8, 2016, the Piedmont community approved Measure H1, authorizing $66 million in school construction bonds to modernize school facilities to better support educational programs. The next step is to develop concept designs for new high school facilities, and the District is looking to the community for input.
The District is holding three community town hall meetings to discuss concept designs for new high school facilities. In order to facilitate an efficient and well-planned meeting for everyone, we are asking that attendees RSVP using the form below.
Community Town Hall Meeting Dates/Time/LocationSaturday, April 1, 9:00 - 11:00 am, PHS Student Center, 800 Magnolia Avenue
Thursday, April 6, 12:30 - 2:00 pm, Ellen Driscoll Theater, 325 Highland Avenue
Tuesday, April 18, 7:00 - 8:30 pm, PHS Student Center, 800 Magnolia Avenue
The purpose of these meetings is to provide information (about the constraints and concept designs that fit within these constraints), promote civic engagement, answer questions, and invite input. We will not be voting or making decisions at these meetings.
During the town hall meetings we ask the community to consider questions such as:
What do you like/dislike about each concept design?Do you have another concept design that fits within the constraints of the budget, site topography, etc.?
While community members are welcome to attend any of the three Community Town Hall Meetings, the information shared will be identical from one meeting to the next. It is not necessary to attend multiple meetings.
Additional town hall meetings will be held next year to discuss facilities for extended-day kindergarten, so this topic will not be addressed at the April meetings.
All are invited to participate, regardless of whether they have students in the Piedmont schools.
Those who can’t attend any of the three town hall meetings can go to the Measure H1 website -- www.measureh1.org -- to learn about and comment on the various concept designs.
