How Grants Are Evaluated
Once applications are received and compiled, the grant committee, which consists of the trustees who are nominated onto that committee, has an opportunity to review them individually and then come together as a group to discuss them before their recommendations are presented to the MTFEE board for final approval. The committee utilizes a grading system, similar to a rubric that the teachers use, during the review process to fairly evaluate the applications. The committee considers many variables from the cost of a grant, to the number of students that will benefit, as well as if the district already has funds in the budget for a particular grant.
