Staff and Classroom Grants

Grants are an important reason why we fundraise. Each year, if funding is available, Jackson staff members are given the opportunity to apply for a grant. All grants are reviewed by the PTSA Board of Directors and either funded, partiality funded or denied depending on request and funds available.

To apply for a grant, complete our grant application and purchase order request forms and return them to the PTSA mailbox in the Jackson office or email them to the PTSA President, moc.l1627759372iamg@1627759372tnedi1627759372serpa1627759372stpsh1627759372j1627759372.
