1314 - Grant Application and Acceptance
The Bon Homme Board of Education encourages the development of proposals to external sources for additional revenue to be used in promoting and providing opportunities for Bon Homme students and staff. All such activities are to meet the following criteria:
1. They are based on a specific set of objectives that relate to the goals, objectives, and mission of the District.
2. They are to provide measures for evaluation as to whether project objectives are achieved.
3. The execution of all projects will conform to state and federal laws and to policies of the Bon Homme Board of Education.
Grant proposals for external funds shall be submitted to the Bon Homme Board of Education for approval.
In the event an opportunity arises to submit a grant proposal and there is insufficient time to place it before the Board, the Superintendent is authorized to use his/her judgment in approving for submission.
As soon as practical thereafter, the Superintendent shall review the grant proposal with the Board.
An additional stipend for up to 5% including benefits, of the total grant amount may be paid to the grant writer only if the grant is successful and it is written outside of normal working hours and there is a provision within the grant for administrative costs. Any expenses incurred prior to grant approval are at the grant writer's personal expense and will be reimbursed provided that provision exists within the grant. Should the grant be unsuccessful, expenses incurred are the grant writer's personal responsibility.
