The PTSO has set aside a substantial portion of its budget to fund special projects at NSHS to promote new initiatives that:
- Reinforce or support student learning (programmatic or curricular),
- Foster personal connections,
- Pilot a new program, or
- Provide for participation in community service activities.
Applications will also be considered for equipment and software that enhances the learning environment, ensures security and health safety, or aids in everyday operational efficiency. Requests for conference fees and travel expenses will be considered only after applicants have applied for departmental, school and/or district funding. Most awards range between $100 to $500. Larger grants are considered, particularly where they involve collaboration.
We encourage faculty, staff, administrators, students, and parents to apply for PTSO funding. All student requests require a sign-off from a member of the NSHS educational staff. Collaboration between constituencies is strongly encouraged. Please download the PTSO grant guidelines, procedures and application form (MS Word). Applications will be processed in two rounds — one due November 5 and one due February 4.
