News & Announcements


We are excited to announce the Project LPIE winners! For the last eight years, Project LPIE has encouraged our Acalanes students to dream big and create at their highest level. Participants submit work that is judged by professionals in the designated field with cash prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. Congratulations to this year’s winners! 

The last installment of the LPIE Podcast Series is a conversation with Richard Whitmore and John Nickerson, the superintendents of Lafayette and Acalanes school districts. Richard and John reflect on the highlights and lowlights of this extraordinary year. They also explain the history behind the decline in California school funding, and why foundations like LPIE are essential. What would our schools look like without LPIE? And, bonus, what do these superintendents anticipate our schools to look like when our children return in August 2021?
