Ketchum Academic Foundation (KAF) Grants To Teachers Policy

The Grants to Teachers purpose is to provide grants to Ketchum Elementary, Junior High and/or High School individual teachers, on a competitive basis, for special and worthy projects or needs which are of an academic nature and are of benefit to the students.  Each grant application will be evaluated for its: (1) academic benefit, (2) realistic goals, (3) clarity, and (4) reasonable budget.

 

The Ketchum Academic Foundation is currently accepting grant requests from the academic teaching faculty.  A teacher should submit a separate grant request for different projects.  Grant applications must be signed by the building principal and mailed directly to the Allocations Committee (PO BOX 322   Ketchum, OK  74349).  If there is a need, the Superintendent may review the request for other available funding sources.  The deadline for submission of grant request is by the 15th of the month.  The grant(s) approved for funding will be funded on or before the 1st of the following month of submission.

 

If funding for the grant request is approved, the teacher agrees to: (1) the terms as outlined in the “Terms of Grant” agreement, (2) to submit to the Allocation Committee at the end of the project an “Expense Report” and an evaluation summarizing how well the project met their goals and objectives.  Should the case arise that a teacher would like to submit a large grant request to a private foundation, the Allocations Committee will discuss the submission with the teacher and submit the grant to the private foundation, if applicable.
