The Palo Alto High School PTSA has financial resources to share with the school community to help make teachers’ and staff members’ jobs easier and more effective, and to support creative and innovative ideas. The PTSA allocates a percentage of its operating funds to support students and instructional programs. While a large portion of PTSA funds go to purchasing items for students – planners, departmental supplies, PSAT, technology – we are making Viking Grants accessible to teachers and staff more directly.
Paly parents donate money to the PTSA in hopes that it can support and inspire the work you do, which in turn enhances the quality of education for their students.
*Note: All funds need to be spend in the school year awarded.
Viking Fast Track Grants (Up to $1000 per request through April, 2017)
Viking Fast Track Grants are a combination of the former Viking and Fast Track Grants. Grants of up to $1000 are awarded to teachers and staff to enhance classroom programs and support school-wide goals. Collaboration among staff members is encouraged, and grants of larger amounts will be considered.
The PTSA Grants Committee will review requests throughout the year, and decisions will be made within two weeks of application submission. Application forms can be found in both pdf and Word formats by clicking the link at the end of this page. Please print the form and return the filled out form to the PTSA box in the main office and send an email to the PTSA Grants Committee Chair, Jill Gold ( firstname.lastname@example.org ), letting us know you have done so.
