There is still time to submit your grant request for this school year, you have until April 3rd.
Here is a recently submitted request from Nate Geroche that the PTA helped fund;
The Chemistry and Physics department needs new sensors for our labs. The new sensors work with Chromebooks and will allow us to implement new and engaging experiments. They connect via Bluetooth, allowing students to take and manipulate data in new ways.
Mr. Geroche said, “We used the pH sensors that PTA help fund today in class! I just wanted to say thanks again for the support. ”
PTA Grant Program
The purpose of the Golden High School PTA Grant Program is to assist educational programs and extracurricular activities when other sources of funding are inadequate. The following are the Grant Program’s priorities: a) classroom support, b) curricular student activities, and c) extracurricular student activities.
PTA members (teachers, staff or family) and student group representatives at Golden High School may apply for a PTA Grant. We do not have a limit on the amount of the request.
- Grant applications must be submitted to the PTA using the attached form. Completed applications may be sent by email to Kat at firstname.lastname@example.org, left in the PTA mailbox or given to any PTA officer anytime up to April 3, 2020.
- Requests will be reviewed at each PTA meeting throughout the school year with the last review by the April PTA meeting. Approved grant recipients will be notified by email.
- Students may also apply for a grant with written approval from a group advisor or sponsor.
- The applicant or designee is invited to attend a PTA meeting to provide a brief presentation on the grant proposal that facilitates understanding of the request and gives the PTA the opportunity to ask questions and the applicant to respond.
- The grant recipient can receive funds by submitting documentation of the cost to the PTA Grant Committee or by requesting direct payment to vendors. Funds must be used for educational resources that benefit Golden High School students and must be completely spent by the last day of the school year.
- For public accountability, the PTA will publicize the grants that have been awarded.
- In the event that all the grant money is not awarded during this fiscal year, it will be carried over for next year’s grant fund.
Any permanent items purchased with PTA grant money become the property of the department or the student group that made the grant request.
