ENRICHMENT GRANT PROGRAM

 

 

The Flocktown Kossmann PTA grant program awards grants up to $1,000 each.  No capital improvements, personal compensation or textbook purchases are considered.

 

Teachers must submit grant requests by the determined deadline.  Those requests are then reviewed by the principal and chairpersons to ensure the request supports the curriculum and are submitted to a review committee (comprised of at least 3 PTA members who are not on the executive board) to either approve or decline the proposed grants as per budget and judging criteria.  Funds are then donated by the Flocktown Kossmann PTA to the Washington Township Board of Education who arranges for the purchase of the approved materials via district-approved vendors and in accordance with the guidelines set by the BOE.
