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 in reimbursements for each full-time teacher ($75 for part-time) for classroom materials, supplies, and equipment.
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 particular classroom or for broader use by a grade level or the whole school. Proposals are due by September 24th. All grant applications will be reviewed by the principal and discussed at the October PTSO meeting. Results will be announced by October 9th. (If there are unspent funds remaining after the fall proposals, a spring submission may be requested.)
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.
