School and Teacher Grants

The Port Angeles Education Foundation Supports Projects of Innovation, Creativity, and Excellence in the classroom and beyond.  Toward this end, the Foundation has been providing funds to educators since 1991. Past awards have been used to pay for field trip transportation, artist and author visits, theatrical workshops, science lectures and field study, technology, etc.  What would you do to S.P.I.C.E. up student educational experiences?

We encourage Port Angeles School District educators, administrators, or parent groups to submit their non-curricular material request to the Foundation for consideration.  The 2018 application period is closed.

Reports for 2018/19 grants are due at the end of the project, but no later than June 30, 2019.
