Classroom Impact Grants Application Guidelines
PET is pleased to offer annual Classroom Impact Grants to Douglas County School System teachers, media specialists, counselors, principals, and assistant principals. Classroom Impact Grants promote creative and innovative ideas in and out of the classroom that directly impact student learning. Almost $150,000 has been awarded in Classroom Impact Grants over the last decade, serving thousands of students at all grade levels throughout the school system.
Teachers, media specialists, counselors, principals, and assistant principals in all Douglas County School System schools, including HAVEN Academy, Performance Learning Center, LEAP, and the College and Career Institute may apply for the competitively-awarded grants. Before applying, please read the guidelines carefully to ensure your application is completed accurately and falls within the scope of PET’s Classroom Impact Grant program.
Requests that should be avoided
What if the staff member who receives a grant leaves our school before implementing the grant?
What if the staff member who receives a grant transfers to a different school within the school system and wants to use the grant at the new school for the same purpose?
What if a grant writer receives a grant for a program or project that has been discontinued?
If a grant request is declined, will PET let the grant writer know why?
