In 1990, the Peninsula Education Foundation (PEF) established Chuck Miller Grants to honor Chuck Miller, former Rancho Vista principal, past president of the Peninsula Education Foundation, and local business leader.
Chuck Miller Grants are awarded to teachers to fund projects of special merit and creativity that promise a unique learning opportunity for students. Any teacher in the PVPUSD is eligible to apply. Applications are judged on the applicants’ proposed use of grant funds, the benefits to students, and the potential for helping to enhance classroom instruction in the school or the district in general. Grants are valued up to $1,000 each.
This 2011-2012 school year, 52 PVPUSD teachers received $35,000 in Chuck Miller Grant funds.
