PEF has granted $2.4 million to our schools this year
PEF funds make a difference in every classroom
PEF grants will directly fund essential academic programs throughout the Piedmont schools this year, representing over 6% of the District’s budget. PEF supports both ongoing core programs and underwrites new and innovative programs throughout the schools. Without that support, librarians, counselors, teachers’ aides, technology, art, music, professional development, innovation and strategic planning could not be so robustly sustained.
