Teacher Mini-Grants (PTO)

Teacher mini-grants are available to all classroom teachers on campus. These grants,  up to $200 for an individual and up to $400 for a group, are funded by the PTO and usually focus on curriculum projects.

Teachers must complete the PTO Funding Request and make the request in person at a PTO meeting. To request a slot on the PTO agenda, please contact the PTO |

Once awarded the grant and purchases are complete grantees should provide a personal thank you note to the PTO. Presentations regarding the impact of the award are greatly appreciated.

Travel Grants (SAC)

Travel grants for participation in professional learning conferences are reviewed and approved by the School Advisory Council (SAC) for up to $500 for state, regional, and national conferences within 6 hours driving distance and up to $1,000 for regional and national conferences that are beyond 6 hours driving distance. Faculty are encouraged to apply as early as possible as funds are limited.
