2016-17 School Year

School Enrichment Funding

Thanks to the  fabulous contributions from many of you in our Byers Community, we now have funds to creatively improve our school! Have a club that needs funding? Want to improve your uniforms for your athletic team? Do you want to sponsor a speaker to come in and talk to your science class? Do you need funding for transportation to a unique opportunity? Our School Enrichment Funding Application is now available - details below!

APPLY HERE FOR School Enrichment Funding!

Please submit this form at least 6 weeks before the event is to take place or the purchase is to be made to ensure that we are able to process your request and give you access to funding. The overall process is outlined below: 

 

  1. Funding requests will be considered at our Byers Leadership Team Execution meeting each week with recommendations given to the Campus Director at this time. Considerations will be made with the following in mind:
  • Are enough details provided to make an informed decision?
  • How many DSST: Byers students will benefit (and for how long)?
  • How big is the need?
  • Will the funding purchase something or pay for a service that helps achieve the mission and goals of DSST: Byers?
  • Are there enough bids to ensure that DSST: Byers is getting best value?
  • Can the funding be obtained from other sources?
  • Would the funding purchase something that is redundant with existing STP or DSST: Byers programming?
  1. Our Campus Director will make final decisions about funding based on predetermined buckets, availability of funds, and by ensuring that the funding request does not contravene the stated mission, philosophy, policies, code of conduct, and bylaws of DSST Public Schools as determined by the Campus Director and the DSST Public Schools Board of Directors. The Campus Director may decline funding - see image of 2016-17 buckets below.
  2. The Campus Director or Associate School Director will communicate the status of the request to the requester(s) when a final decision is made.
  3. If the request is approved, the following will occur:
  • The Operations Manager will make funds available 14 days after a reimbursement form or invoice is submitted.
  • Requester or a representative will be encouraged to present at and/or provide information for an upcoming general STP meeting to share outcomes, measurements and learning of the event/purchase.
