Managing the Award

Whether your grant/crowdfunding project is a school-level or district-level, you may need help in navigating the fiscal management and reporting requirements that your award brings with it.  

 

Guidelines and Protocol

  • All grants and awards accepted must be aligned with YCSD’s beliefs/philosophy.
  • YCSD reserves the right to determine if the grant is appropriate and may reject those it deems inappropriate.
  • All grant awards must have approval by the YCSD CEO.


Practical Steps

  • Contact all stakeholders involved and inform them of the grant/crowdfunding award and expectations. 
  • Align all activities and expenditures with stated goals, objectives and budgets of the grant proposal. Contact the School Improvement Office if you are uncertain if expenditure is allowable.
  • Use timelines.  Be prompt with all documentation and reports required by the grantor.
  • Forward copies of all grants and reports to the School Improvement Office.
  • Keep all documentation at your school site related to the grant on file for up to five years. (Copy in the School Improvement Office)
