2104 Procedure – Federal and/or State Funded Special Instructional Programs

Applications for special funds or categorical grants will be based upon the needs of the students, staff, or facilities within the district. Such applications may be related to the program needs of a particular school or the district as a whole. Each proposal for special funding must address the following points:

A.   Needs: The proposal should supply hard data, and succinctly identify and/or document the specific needs that are to be addressed;

B.   Objectives: The stated needs should be converted into objectives answering what the project hopes to accomplish;

C.   Procedures: The action plan should be presented answering how the objectives will be accomplished; and

D.   Evaluation: The evaluation plan will identify the kind of data to be collected along with identifying who will collect the data.

The proposal should also include a tentative budget which identifies proposed expenditures and revenues. A timeline should also be included which shows the submission date deadline, funding agency approval date, and the project status report dates. The proposal writer must identify any obligations that the district will incur as a result of securing a grant award, following the district’s grant writing procedures.

The proposal must be approved by the supervising administrator before submission to the district office. Proposals must be submitted to the superintendent at least two weeks prior to submission.

When a project is approved, the business office will be given a copy of the grant award notice and will establish the appropriate accounting procedures for operating the special program.
