The Princeton Education Foundation exists to support the students in the Princeton Public Schools by ensuring they have access to exceptional facilities and a model curriculum. Princeton has long enjoyed a reputation for high quality education and PEF aims to continue to play a role in distinguishing our schools as the top performing in the state and nation. Our vision is to enhance student learning and arm our students with the tools and self-confidence to reach their dreams.
Currently, the NJ state legislature strictly caps annual school budget increases at 2%. However, the budget must still cover state and federal mandated programs, and increases in energy and insurance costs (which have been growing at a rate far exceeding 2%). The Board of Education struggles annually to make difficult budget choices: maintaining programs, balancing funding, and retaining excellent teachers. In this environment, it is very difficult to add new programs and upgrade classroom technology – that is where the Education Foundation steps in!
The PEF Grant program serves as a catalyst to support and enhance school improvement programs that heighten learning opportunities for students in the Princeton Public Schools.
