Agenda Item

Meeting Date
February 10, 2015

Agenda Item Title
Recommend Approval of Proposed Amendments to Policy DDA, "Grant Funding"

Correlation to Board of Education Vision, Mission & Core Beliefs
Operating effectively and efficiently with fiscal accountability

Staff Present
Talla Rittenhouse, Executive Director of Strategy Management

Main Points
Proposed amendments to Policy DDA, “Grant Funding,” are before the Board for action.  The amendments change the minimum amount for grant applications which must be approved by the Board prior to submission from $15,000 to $50,000 for grants that do not require a matching fund obligation.  For grants that require a match, the minimum amount requiring prior Board approval will remain at $15,000.  In addition, the terminology in Section IV, “Alignment with CMS Goals,” has been updated to reflect current district practices.
This policy was reviewed by the Policy Committee on January 8, 2015, and recommended for Board adoption by three of the four members present.
