PEAK Grants are competitive classroom grants that Promote Excellence And Knowledge. Teachers apply for these grants annually. PEAK Grants cover a large variety of curricular areas and touch the lives of many students of all ages. Grants ranging from $100 to approximately $3,500 are awarded in early May by a surprise squad of Foundation board members called the PEAK Patrol.
As of May 2016, 771 PEAK Grants totaling $784,218 have been awarded to staff members across the district over the past few years. For the 2016-17 school year, 47 PEAK Grants will be impacting student learning in classrooms across the district.
