The purpose of PTSO grants is to support and enhance academic experiences for Skyline students. Grants may be used to bring resources to the classroom, acquire special materials, or provide unique experiences related to the curriculum and over-all school experience. All teachers, staff, and student organizations in the Skyline community may apply for grants. Grant requests are evaluated by the principal and the PTSO board. Requests are prioritized based on school-wide benefit, available funds, cost, and need.
Grant applications should clearly convey how students will benefit as a result of the funding and should fall into one or more of the following categories:
Curriculum: Enhance the curriculum or fill a gap in the curriculum.
Enrichment: Enrich the student’s learning experience and personal development.
Participation: Enable and promote student participation in learning and extracurricular activities.
Applicants are welcome to make a presentation to the PTSO membership in support of their grant requests. Email the PTSO president at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the meeting agenda. To attach additional documentation to your application, email the documentation to the PTSO president at email@example.com.
