Innovative Grant Programs
Thanks to a generous grant from Oracle, PPIE is able to grant funds to students and teachers through the Innovative Grant Program. In January, PPIE awarded nine Innovative Student Grants. Congratulations to our grant recipients! The online application for Innovative Education Grants is now open through March 15. All PUSD educators are eligible to apply for these grants, up to $3,000 to fund an innovative project that is student focused, promotes creativity and innovative thinking, offers expanded opportunities for learning and supports Common Core standards, as well as the PUSD Strategic Plan.
PUSD is pleased to present the approved 2017-2018 school year calendar. The 2017-2018 calendar follows a similar schedule to the revised calendar adopted for 2016-2017, with the first semester concluding prior to winter break.
