In an effort to assist teachers and staff with needed resources to benefit our students, C.K. McClatchy PTSA established the Mini-Grant Program. The PTSA has funded over $6,000 in teacher Mini-Grants during the last few years.
Projects addressing the under served needs of the students and are not covered by other school funding sources have the highest priority for funding. Use of Grants has been used for a wide variety of items such as: enrichment activities, field trips, classroom equipment/supplies, software, and improvements to teaching and learning spaces.
On an annual basis and/or as PTSA funds allow, the PTSA Board accepts and reviews applications received from teachers and staff for mini-grants. The Board awards the mini-grant(s) based on established criteria. This usually takes place during the 3rd quarter of the school year. All teachers and staff are eligible.
