A+BC Grants and Recognitionimage004
A+BC awards grants to teachers, students, parents, administrators and support staff to promote positive academic experiences. The Academic Booster Club has collected and returned between $4,000 and $6,000 each year to schools and students.

In  2014, the A+BC board reviewed and revised the grant guidelines for the upcoming year. The following are the criteria for reviewing and awarding A+BC grants to teachers, students, parents, administrators and support staff:

*Our goal through grant-making is to help promote academic pursuits and achievement across all grade levels, including post-secondary education. With this in mind, we have outlined the following criteria in funding requests:

  • Requests that will impact large numbers of students in a cost-effective manner
  • Requests that have long-lasting benefits
  • Requests that fund ideas, activities or items not traditionally covered by the school district
  • Requests to supplement or enhance the classroom curriculum
  • Requests that have partial funding from other sources

The following will not be funded by A+BC Grants:

  • Professional development for individual teachers
  • Annual memberships or dues
  • Subscriptions or licenses
  • Prizes or rewards for students

Grants will be reviewed three times per year at A+BC Board Meetings held the first Monday of October, December and March. Funds will be distributed at the school board meeting within the next 6 weeks.

Grants must be received by the following dates for review at the next month’s board meeting:

  • February 25th
  • September 25th
  • November 25th
