PSFA supports learning opportunities throughout the school year
Each spring and fall, Public School Funding Alliance (PSFA) invites teachers, school staff and community members to submit funding requests for programs and materials that enrich education for students in Methow Valley public schools.
Grants approved during the regular funding cycles for this academic year range from $250 for a rock climbing program at the Independent Learning Center, to $30,000 for International Baccalaureate (IB) teacher training, funded through a designated gift.
The bulk of PSFA’s funding is allocated in spring and fall, but throughout the school year unanticipated educational opportunities and needs come up – from transportation for field trips to teaching materials. To help teachers and community members capture opportunities for innovative approaches to learning and meet educational needs, PSFA has a small grant program that provides funding throughout the year for requests of up to $200.
Over the past two years, PSFA has provided more than $2,000 in small grants for programs and materials that enhance education and that aren’t able to be funded through the district budget.
