Teacher Mini-Grant Application

CLASSROOM MINI-GRANTS

Here's how it works:

  1. Make your purchases. Make every effort to find a good price, to use the PTA or the school’s Non-profit Tax ID number to eliminate taxes as allowed, and to share equipment with other teachers. Summer 2017 purchases are eligible.
  2. Submit your original receipts and the reimbursement form (2017-18 Reimbursement Form) to the Mini-Grant mailbox in the main office.
  3. If needed, you may request direct payment to a vendor for purchases over $100. If you want to purchase an item that costs over $100, email us so that we can be sure it is not already available.
  4. Items purchased with Mini-Grant funds must be used during the 2017-18 school year and remain in the school as school property.

If you have questions or are unsure about how much money you have left in your Mini-Grant allocation (if any), contact us at minigrants58[at]gmail.com. We are here to help.

CURRICULAR MINI-GRANTS

The PTA Mini-Grant committee will also offer Curricular Mini-grants this year. These separate funds are available for specific additional expenses - either related to a thoughtful creative learning project or to an unexpected, unique or unmet need. They are generally for programs shared among a grade, with a specialty teacher or with support staff. These are separate funds than Mini-Grants.

Here's how it works:

  1. Teachers apply to the Mini-Grant Chairs using the attached curricular form (2017-18 Curricular Grant Form). These grants should encourage creative and innovative approaches to learning.
  2. The grant is reviewed by the Mini-Grant Committee for approval or revision.
  3. When approved, make purchases and submit all receipts with the original approved request for reimbursement. Please return all forms to our mailbox.
