In an effort to comply with board policy and KDE accounting procedures for Kentucky school activity funds (Redbook) please use the following guidelines pertaining to grant applications and funding:


ANY GRANT THAT REQUIRES MATCHING BOARD FUNDS, ADDITIONAL STAFFING OR ADDITIONAL STAFF RESPONSIBILITIES MUST BE APPROVED BY THE BOARD OF EDUCATION - ALL OTHERS REQUIRE PRINCIPAL APPROVAL ONLY!


Scott County Board of Education Policy #01.11 (Applications for Grants):

Schools, employees, and school-related groups who are applying for grants on behalf of the District or District schools that require board approval shall send a copy of the completed application to the Superintendent/designee, who shall present the application to the Board with a recommendation for approval or disapproval.

However, grant applications shall not require prior Board approval in the following instances:

  • Grant applications permitted by law to be submitted by individual schools without Board approval;
  • Grants not requiring matching Board funds;
  • Grants not requiring additional staffing or additional staff responsibilities
 
Once funds are awarded: 
  • Notify Vanessa Stewart in the Business and Finance Office send a copy of the grant application and award notification.
  • When the funds are received, the check must be forwarded to the Business & Finance office for deposit. (see Redbook below)
  • A grant project will be set up at the district level for expending the funds.

 

Per KDE Accounting Procedures for Kentucky School Activity Funds (Redbook):

No grant monies, day care fees, adult education fees, or tuition fees shall be deposited in the school activity fund as they must be handled through the central office bank account.
