PCEF reserves $10,000 for teacher, school and district needs that arise during the school year and are out of the grant cycle (Teacher Grants are due 10/31). The maximum amount for an express grant is $1000. Occasionally, private funds are matched with an express grant to increase the impact.
Only PCSD Administrators, with their teachers, may apply for Express Grants.
All grants must fall into one of the following PCEF interest areas: Academic Rigor, College and Career Readiness, Early Childhood Education, Professional Development & Teacher Recognition, STEM, and The Arts.
Express Grants are reviewed the last week of the month by the PCEF staff and recipients will be notified the first week of the following month. Funds will be available the following week. YOUR generosity has enabled PCEF to fund $10,000 in School Grants for 2015 - 2016 school year!
