The Pleasant Hill Foundation awards "Innovative Educator" grants each fall. The grants are awarded for innovative and creative educational projects or enhancements to the classroom. The projects may be for a classroom, a grade level, a school or the entire district. Applicants may be one or more teachers, a group of teachers/staff, an outside student group or another PHSD employee.
"Innovative Educator Grants are a very important part of the Foundation's goal of enhancing educational opportunities in the classroom and beyond. Each year the number of requests and amount grows and with the continued investment from our community members and alumni we hope to continue to expand our grants program."
--Sherry Bryson, PHEF Executive Director
Each year, PHEF funds are distributed to the Pleasant Hill School District for Innovative Educator Grants. The grants awarded range from individual classroom grants to grants for entire grade levels and across multiple grade levels. Grants are funded through the generosity of our donors, using funds raised throughout the year. Unrestricted gifts fund the majority of the grants, while designated gifts allow the donor to support a specific program. No matter how you designate your gift, you are helping the students of the Pleasant Hill School District!
Grants applications are submitted each fall by teachers, administrators, and student groups. The Pleasant Hill Education Foundation Board of Directors and outside committee members review grant applications and vote on funding. Funds are distributed in November for use during the current school year.
