The Conn PTA recognizes the challenges facing teachers in bringing unique learning experiences to our students. We have created a Mini-Grant program to help offset costs for learning opportunities that fit our magnet theme and mission at Conn.
Application Deadlines:Fall - October 15thSpring - February 15th
Applicant Requirements:Applicants must a) be a professional educator employed full-time at Conn Elementary School, and b) a CONN PTA member of the current school year in which they are applying for mini-grant funding.
Scoring & Review:The PTA mini-grant committee will review each application and score each request with a rubric. Before finalizing the awardees, the building principal will be consulted to ensure that requests for funding align with school initiative and all other sources of funding have been explored. Please note that while the PTA tries to keep the scoring and review of requests as objective and equitable as possible, there are occasions where some requests will be denied simply because there are just too many requests for the amount of funds available. If you are passionate about funding your project/program, please contact the Mini-Grant Chairperson for further dialogue about why your request was denied and other possible avenues of funding.
If you have questions please contact our committee chairperson at email@example.com.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL APPLICATIONS ARE REVIEWED BY THE CONN ELEMENTARY ADMINISTRATION PRIOR TO ANY COMMITTEE DECISIONS.
• Submit copies of all receipts for funds spent on granted project/program to the PTA Treasurer by June 30th of the school year in which mini-grant is awarded, or otherwise a) be held responsible as a PTA member in the event that Conn PTA’s finances are audited either internally by NCPTA or externally by the IRS, and/or b) forfeit your good standing as an eligible mini-grant applicant until receipts from prior awarded grants are submitted.
