Express Grants 

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 Success, College and Career Readiness, Early Childhood Education, Professional Development & Teacher Recognition, STEM, Student Wellness, 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 2017 - 2018 school year!

Express Grants for 2017 - 2018:

Light bulbAcademic Success

Fundations Materials - MPES - $1,000

  • Funds will be used to purchase text books for teachers that are connected to the Fundations scope/sequence.

Wobble Chairs - MPES - $280

  • Wobble chairs allow students to move their bodies while focusing on what their teachers are asking them to do at their desks/tables. They’re a great way for first graders (who need to be on the move) to stay active while engaging in more sedentary tasks like reading groups.

SPEAK Program - PPES - $1,000

  • The S.P.E.A.K program, which stands for Students, Parents, Educators, Academic Knowledge, aims to give ELL students the intensive, consistent instruction they need via the afterschool program, 30 minutes a day, so that the students can improve their English communication skills without having to miss any more regular daytime school hours.

College career

College and Career Readiness



Cubelets Modular Robotics Prizes for Science Fair - MPES - $780

  • Funds will provide McPolin Science and Engineering Fair winners with Cubelets Robotics Blocks as prizes. Cubelets are simple robotics kits that teach children how to build robots. Five Cubelets will be awarded to teachers whose projects win best classroom project at the MCPolin Science and Engineering Fair. Lastly, each teacher (one per grade, K-5) will receive a Cubelets 6 kit so that fully functional robots can be built in the classroom and are then also compatible with the Cubelets in the new McPolin Makerspace


Student Wellness

Suicide Prevention Books for Seniors - PCHS - $1,000

  • Funds will provide 80 copies of the book What Made Maddy Run before author's Kate Fagan's April 4, 2018 assembly when the author will speak to the Park City High School student body.
