Teacher “Mini-Grant” Application

Prospect High School PTSA sets aside a portion of its annual budget to fund teacher requests or “mini-grants” for purchase of classroom equipment or items needed to improve the educational environment for teachers and students. These funds help to supplement district and school-site funding.  These “mini-grants” are for one-time funding annually.  Additional funding for the same or similar requests need to be resubmitted for each calendar year.  Requests are reviewed and voted on by PTSA board members, the school principal, and parents/students/teachers attending the meeting.

Please fill out the PHS PTSA mini-grant application 2018-19 and email to secretary@prospectptsa.org OR print out and put in the PTSA mail box in the main office.

Deadline: Friday, September 21st, 2018
