During the academic year we notify the faculty and administration of the Mount Pleasant Central School District that we are accepting grants applications. After receiving the grant requests, the Foundation’s Board of Directors review each grant and votes on which request should be funded.
When requested, teachers, principals, the Board of Education and District administrators have assisted the Foundation in evaluating proposed grants to help ensure their educational value, relevance to the curriculum as well as sustainability through the school budget. The number of grants awarded each year varies, depending on the number of applications submitted, whether proposed grants meet the Foundation grant criteria, the cost of the proposed grants and the availability of funds.
Once approved, the Foundation provides the funds immediately to the teacher that requested the grant to ensure the program can be implemented in the current academic year.
