The Piscataway Education Foundation (PEF) will fund nineteen teacher grants totaling close to $20,000 for the 2015-2016 school year. This is the first year for the Inspire Grant Program, which offers teachers funding opportunities for programs, new technologies, and hands-on experiences that may not be covered under the annual school operating budget.
Grants were awarded to teachers spanning preschool through high school. Curriculum areas included Literacy, STEM, Fine Arts, Special Education, History, Foreign Language, ESL and Physical Education. Several grants were for cross-curricular projects or included life skills and socialization opportunities.
