Schools in Piedmont have been awarded $3,350,000 by the Piedmont Education Foundation (PEF) for the 2022-23 school year, East Bay Times reports.

The PEF has recommended that the district use the grant to fund the continuation of two newer programs as well as expanding tutoring and mental health resources at Piedmont schools.

“This year’s (grant process) was really special since the Giving Campaign raised far more money than expected,” said PEF’s Executive Director Heather Frank, adding, “We were able to satisfy PUSD (Piedmont Unified School District) budget needs and save some programming.”

Of the grant funds, 72% will go towards supporting teacher salaries, which also includes librarians and specialists, with another 20% supporting other staff and 8% of the funds will be allocated to the development of curriculum.

Santa Clara Co. Sheriff to pull deputies from courthouses

Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith in a memo sent last Friday announced that she plans on pulling her deputies from courthouses in Palo Alto and Morgan Hill citing staff shortages, East Bay Times reports.

Smith notified the court in her memo that her deputies “will no longer be able to staff the Palo Alto and South County Court facilities effective June 13, 2022.”

Smith suggested the courthouses close until further notice but was met with objection from Judge Theodore Zayner, who wrote that Smith’s notice was “surprising” and “on short notice.”

“We have no current intent to close any courthouses or courtrooms,” Zayner’s letter continued. The courthouses reopened this year after being shuttered for the majority of the pandemic.

Smith claims in the memo addressed to Zayner and Court Executive Officer Rebecca Fleming that she suggested the reopening of the Palo Alto courthouse be delayed until staffing levels improved.

“I am optimistic that this is a temporary, but not necessarily a short-term problem,” Smith wrote. “I believe if we work together to develop solutions, we can navigate this difficult time.”
