Check out these PEP-related Breakout Sessions (with more in the works!):
PEP Grant: Catalyst for Change - This session will provide first-hand experience with overseeing a 3 year 1.1 million dollar PEP Grant in Millcreek Township School District, Erie, Pennsylvania. In order for you to make most of your funding, this program will discuss areas the PEP Grant can influence. These areas include staff preparation, handling vendors, purchasing equipment, developing curriculum, utilizing technology, assessment, data collection, staff wellness, and advocacy for physical education programs. When you leave this session you would have a better understanding on how to utilize your funds to their fullest.
Grants: How, What, Where, Who Qualifies, and How to Write - Want to write a grant for your physical education program and don’t know where to start? Listen as a successful grant writer (grants including Carol M. White PEP Grant and the No Child Left Inside Grant) discusses key components of grant writing: 1.) grant writing specific to physical education/health/recreation, and 2.) the process of searching for grants applicable to physical education/health/recreation. This informative and interactive session will give you a better understanding of grant writing.
A plethora of additional PEP Grant winners will be on hand presenting on these topics:
- Creating a Blueprint for Systemic, Sustainable Change
- Show-Me the Results: A System for Data-Management and Accountability
