PTA Funding Request: Instructional Grants
Please use this form for only ONE request at a time.  Some things to keep in mind:

1) Eligible faculty and staff at Salem Middle School should use this form to submit their request for an Instructional Grant request. A paper form can be printed and submitted, but we prefer this form. To check eligibility, please see the page linked below. If you have a question, feel free to email us.

2) Individual teachers can only submit one instructional grant application for themselves per year.

3) Eligible personnel can participate in up to two group requests beyond any individual request (1 per semester; for example, if a PLT asks for funds). Non-eligible personnel can be part of the request, but they cannot be the lead applicant.

4) In addition to completing this form, some documentation might required or requested (for example, estimates of materials needed, etc.). Our preference are for these files to be shared or emailed to us, but we will accept physical copies submitted to the PTA mailbox in the SMS mailroom. Make sure your name accompanies any physical materials, please.

5) Reviews will be conducted approximately quarterly (if budgeted funds allow). Here are some general due dates for grant applications:
     Q1) Due by September 1.
     Q2) Due by November 1
     Q3) Due by January 15
     Q4) Due by April 1

Reviews typically happen within 30 days of receipt of the grant request. It is not common to have requests approved before 30 days. If the timing needs to be sooner, please send an email and Cc the principal.
