Pasadena Unified School District Teachers and Administrators are key to providing excellence in the education of our students. PEF provides services and opportunities for teachers in many ways, ranging from opportunities for grants for classroom projects to support for professional development to employment.
PEF is no longer accepting grant applications for the 2015-16 school year.
PEF Teacher Grant Program
The PEF Teacher Grant Program provides students with important tools and learning experiences. This program is a vital resource for students, teachers and principals and funds equipment and instructional materials that enhance the curriculum and increase student achievement. All certificated personnel in the Pasadena Unified School District are eligible to apply for classroom and student-centered projects. Proposals may be submitted by individual teachers, teams of teachers, or PUSD certificated personnel.
Field Trip Fund
With a grant from the Helen and Will Webster Foundation, PEF is able to award approximately $50,000 to fund field trips for students throughout the year. To apply, please use the form found here.
