Forms to Access Funding
PTSO funding can be accessed in a few ways, as outlined below. Note that we are transitioning to a fully electronic process, where requests are submitted via an online form and then a photo or screenshot of the associated invoice or receipt is sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once these steps are completed, please allow 10 days for PTSO to review and issue the payment.
Teacher vouchers offer $300 per school year to each full-time teacher or professional staff member for teaching-related materials, supplies, and equipment. Vouchers for part-time staff are pro-rated according to their FTE fraction at Logan (e.g., 0.5 FTE = $150), with a floor of $75.
Another funding mechanism is the PTSO grant program, which has budgeted $5000 this school year to be distributed across proposals submitted by teachers and staff. These can be something for a classroom or for broader use by a grade level or the whole school. All proposals will be reviewed by the principal and PTSO during monthly meetings. Update 2/10/23: PTSO recently approved a second round of funding, so we are once again accepting proposals.
For all other funding requests, such volunteers' expenses and field trip transportation, use the following form. (Please contact the treasurer for guidance on estimating costs for bus transportation.)
Some vendors offer discounts or sales tax exemption for nonprofits. Below is a link to an IRS letter affirming the Logan PTSO's status as a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization and providing the tax ID number.
