Teacher Grants

Gunn PTSA Teacher Grants
2017 – 2018 School Year

The Gunn PTSA is pleased to announce our Teacher Grants process for the 2017–18 school year. Please read these guidelines to understand the process and criteria.

Goals of the PTSA Teacher Grant

The PTSA has financial resources to share with teachers and staff to promote innovative teaching methods. Grants will be considered for classroom or school-wide programs that teach students in creative and engaging ways.

Grant requests of up to $2000 are considered. Grant amounts must include tax and shipping, and a cost estimate for each item to be purchased as part of the grant proposal. Funds must be spent in the 2017–18 school year.

Requests for hardware/software can be considered if first approved by the Gunn Tech Supervisor (PTSA can not commit funds for post-purchase multi-year support.).

How to Apply

Application Window: September 21 – October 6, 2017
Prior to filling out the online application, please make sure to complete the below checklist:

  • Your departmental IS has reviewed and approved your grant proposal
  • You have approval from Gunn Tech (for hardware or software requests)

The Gunn PTSA Budget Committee (includes the Gunn principal) reviews grant requests after the application window closes on October 6. All grant applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision by October 20, 2017.

Ordering and Payment Process

If your application is approved, teachers/staff work with Hindi Hipp (Gunn Budget Secretary) for all orders, shipments, and payments related to the grant.
