What constitutes a Not in Our School project? (View NIOS "Quick Start Guide" for ideas)
Not in Our School is not a prescribed program, however to receive funding, projects need to include the following:
- Student-led and peer-to-peer action where students identify problems and come up with and implement solutions
- A message of inclusion and respect of students of all backgrounds, races, religions, and gender identities
- A clear message that says: NOT IN OUR SCHOOL
- Please also read through these procedures & considerations before starting your application:
- A signature is required from your school principal to ensure that appropriate administrative personnel are aware of your submission of the grant application.
- Project activities must take place and funds must be spent in Fall 2012 (August-December 2012). A final expense report will be required and grant evaluation will be required.
- The Not in Our School project reserves the right to publicize all grant programs.
- Funds cannot be allocated toward personal honorariums for the applicant.
- Proposals will not be funded for expansion and/or maintenance of previous grants.
- Each teacher may submit only one proposal; however, if a teacher is part of a team for one proposal, the teacher is not prohibited from submitting another proposal as part of a different team or on their own.
