Many school districts have parent organizations that accept grant applications from teachers for materials they need. We know that it can be difficult to juggle all the work of teaching along with writing a grant, especially if you have never written a grant before. Therefore, we have posted a sample grant that you can use toward your own application. Certainly, every school district has its own rules, regulations, and formats for grants, but you can always reformat what we provide and add whatever specific requirements your district requires.
