Proposal Coversheet - List the project's title, involved teachers, subject area(s), grade level(s), and grant amount requested. This page should be signed by the teacher who will serve as the director and primary contact person for the project, and by the principal. This is the only place the names of teachers shall be listed anywhere on the grant. The title of the grant should be listed at the top of EVERY sheet in the proposal.
Project Description - Describe the project and its components. Outline a specific unit of study that includes methods, materials, and objectives. Keep in mind the following criteria:
CPSF grants are intended to fund creative teaching plans.
If equipment or materials are requested, demonstrate that they are essential to the completion of the innovative teaching plan, and in no way construed as the focus of the proposal.
Discuss future uses for equipment or remaining materials once this project is completed.
Needs Statement - Document the major educational needs that this project addresses. Include an estimated number of students impacted by this project.
Evaluation - Present a plan for measuring the degree to which the stated objectives of this project have been met.
Timeframe - Present a schedule for implementation of this project, including a start and end date, and discuss whether this project could be repeated or if it is a one-time-only event.
Project Personnel Qualifications – If personnel outside the Clinton Public School system (i.e., a visiting artist or scientific expert) will be involved in this project, include a one-page biography or resume. If you have been awarded any CPSF grants in the last two years, include how many have been awarded.
Itemized Budget - Present specific information about each expense associated with this project, including kinds of materials and/or equipment needed, sources of supply, and shipping and handling expenses. If possible, attach brochures describing the requested items.
Other Funding Sought - Explain any previous or current attempts to obtain funding for this project from other sources, including the school district or site budget process.
Signatures - All grants must be signed by the school principal.
During the Grant – The principal will ensure that the project is shared on social media and with the Clinton Daily News in any way applicable.
After the grant has been completed - The teacher will submit a brief review summary of the project to the Assistant Superintendent no later than 6 weeks after completion. The review should include:
- Was this project successful?
- Did you use all of the funds given to you by CPSF?
- Did you run into any unexpected problems implementing this grant?
- Would you do this project again?
If the project is delayed or takes longer than one semester to implement, the teacher will provide updates to CPSF via the Assistant Superintendent every semester on the progress of the project. Funds for projects that have not begun one year after awarded will be relinquished back to CPSF.
