To:        Faculty and Staff, Newton North High School
From:    NNHS PTSO

Date:    October 23, 2020
Re:     Grants and Projects Applications —Deadline: Tuesday, November 23, 2020

The NNHS PTSO is pleased to announce that it is opening the Grants and Projects program for the 2020-21 school year.  The application process is starting earlier this year to help support teachers and students during this difficult period. This program is intended to provide financial support for innovative projects and academic enrichment initiatives that are not funded through the ordinary school budget and where alternative sources of funding are not reasonably accessible. Through the generosity of our parent community, we have been able to provide full or partial funding to the majority of applicants each year. All faculty, staff, and students throughout every department are encouraged to apply for these grants.

GUIDELINES:  Approval of projects is based primarily on the following considerations:

  1. The extent to which the project will provide enrichment or innovative learning experiences.
  2. The number of students benefiting and the depth of the experience for those students.
  3. The availability of other sources of funding and efforts made to obtain other funding.
  4. The ability of the project to continue into the future without additional PTSO support.

PROCEDURES:  For consideration, applications must be reviewed by Department Heads (for faculty) or House Deans (for students) and submitted by Tuesday, November 23, 2020. 

Review of Applications:                               November 25, 2020
PTSO Board Approval:                                 December 2, 2020
Award Letters Emailed:                              December 9, 2020

To the extent that funds remain available beyond this timeframe, additional grant applications will still be accepted.
