Grant Application Guidelines Monies may be requested from time to time to fund various projects at Bates Elementary School. Certain criteria must be met for a grant approval: * Team Bates PTO must have funds available to cover said requests. * Funds requested must be used explicitly to benefit the teachers, students and staff at Bates Elementary School. * Grant requests that benefit only one classroom and/or teacher have historically not been approved. * While all grant requests are evaluated and voted for on case by case basis, the Grant Committee seeks to approve grant requests that have a school-wide or multi-classroom benefit. * A grant or expenditure must be approved prior to spending funds. Team Bates PTO is not obligated to fund or liable for any expenses that did not receive prior approval.
Revisions for 2016-2017 School Year Grant applications will be reviewed for approval three times per school year: *at the November, January and April Team Bates meetings
The submission deadline for grants will be the Friday prior to the corresponding Team Bates meeting
