Grant applications may be reviewed and voted on monthly at the GSD Foundation board meetings, typically held the first Thursday of the month. Awards must be implemented within the school year of acceptance notification.
Teachers/staff receiving awards must order all materials on district requisition forms, using assigned budget number. Completed forms, with a copy of the approved supply list, must be submitted to the building principal. Any fundamental changes in approved materials must be approved by the GSD Foundation.
All items purchased, any materials developed, and the project itself shall become the property of the Girard School District and/or the GSD Foundation.
All participants are required to submit a one-page typed summary report, which describes how student learning has been enhanced, with recommendations for possible future use of these ideas at the conclusion of the project. A minimum of 5 electronic pictures must be submitted with this report.
Teachers/staff receiving awards will be required to give credit to the Girard School District Foundation in all correspondence and/or media coverage.
Your generous gifts will change our students for the better. Not only will funds go towards educational materials and supplies, but they will also be given directly to the students through scholarships.
