Highlights of the funding process for teachers . . .

  • Teachers of Programs of Study courses are sent the Perkins and Next Generation Grant teacher applications for the next school year starting in April each year with a deadline to complete and return in May in order to be included in the APS application. 
  • The grant expires on June 30th of each year, then PED begins grant implementation July 1st of each year.
  • Teachers are then requested  to turn in Perkins and Next Gen Program Of Study  final budgets with quotes and pre-approval forms to Tori no later than August 26th.  These are built from the applications submitted in May.
  • At the end of August and into September grant money and operational funds are distributed and teachers receive their award letters as notification.
  • Please have your purchases received and documentation of their receipt to CTE right after you receive them so that your purchase order(s) can be closed as completed.

Tips for teachers:

  • If you know of a grant you want to apply to, let’s collaborate and get it written! 

  • Everything you need is on the CTE shared drive. Some processes have changed.

    • Travel: alcohol cannot be on a receipt that is turned in for reimbursement.
    • Stipends: All stipends are $1500 if included in the POS budget.
    • Hourly pay: talk to Tori and Abby to get the go ahead and a time card set up. 
  • Email Tori if you do not have access to the APS CTE Shared Drive. 
  • Look for deadlines for stipend and time card submissions.
