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 2017, 821 PEAK Grants totaling $843,329 have been awarded to staff members across the district over the past few years. For the 2017-18 school year, 50 PEAK Grants will be impacting student learning in more than 83 classrooms across the district.
