January 2007 Public Engagement Meetings Scheduled

Save the dates January 18 and January 31 for the next community-wide meetings on the PUSD Bond Program.Both meetings will take place in the City Hall Council Chambers, 120 Vista Avenue, from 7:00-9:00 pm, and be televised on KCOM.  The topics for discussion include:

January 18, 2007 – Community-wide input on K-12 educational program needs

  • For those who missed the December meetings at PHS and Havens, this meeting will be a great opportunity to learn from school principals what public education looks like today in the classrooms, libraries, and labs throughout the Piedmont schools.

January 31, 2007 – Community-wide update on PUSD Bond Program

  • The architectural/engineering firm of Murakami/Nelson has been hired to conduct detailed engineering and cost estimation work on buildings that present the greatest seismic safety risks in our schools.  Havens and PHS are first in line for this work.
  • Although recommended options on how to address the seismic needs of the priority buildings will not be available by then – on January 31, Program Manager, David Burke, and Superintendent Constance Hubbard, will provide the public with a status report on the district’s progress.

We look forward to seeing everyone come the New Year!
